2019

Abstract

Let M be a C-2-smooth Riemannian manifold with boundary and N a complete C-2-smooth Riemannian manifold. We show that each stationary p-harmonic mapping u: M -> N, whose image lies in a compact subset of N, is locally C-1,C-alpha for some alpha is an element of (0, 1), provided that N is simply connected and has non-positive sectional curvature. We also prove similar results for minimizing p-harmonic mappings with image being contained in a regular geodesic ball. Moreover, when M has non-negative Ricci curvature and N is simply connected with non-positive sectional curvature, we deduce a gradient estimate for C-1-smooth weakly p-harmonic mappings from which follows a Liouville-type theorem in the same setting.

Riemannian manifold

In differential geometry, a Riemannian manifold or Riemannian space (M, g), so called after the German mathematician Bernhard Riemann, is a real, smooth manifold M equipped with a positive-definite inner product gp on the tangent space TpM at each point p. The family gp of inner products is called a Riemannian metric (or Riemannian metric tensor). Riemannian geometry is the study of Riemannian manifolds. A common convention is to take g to be smooth, which means that for any smooth coordinate chart (U, x) on M, the n2 functions are smooth functions.

Harmonic map

In the mathematical field of differential geometry, a smooth map between Riemannian manifolds is called harmonic if its coordinate representatives satisfy a certain nonlinear partial differential equation. This partial differential equation for a mapping also arises as the Euler-Lagrange equation of a functional called the Dirichlet energy. As such, the theory of harmonic maps contains both the theory of unit-speed geodesics in Riemannian geometry and the theory of harmonic functions.

Ricci curvature

In differential geometry, the Ricci curvature tensor, named after Gregorio Ricci-Curbastro, is a geometric object which is determined by a choice of Riemannian or pseudo-Riemannian metric on a manifold. It can be considered, broadly, as a measure of the degree to which the geometry of a given metric tensor differs locally from that of ordinary Euclidean space or pseudo-Euclidean space. The Ricci tensor can be characterized by measurement of how a shape is deformed as one moves along geodesics in the space.
