Undergraduate Colloquium: Harmonic Maps and Their Applications


Join us on Thursday, October 22 for an undergraduate colloquium in applied mathematics!

The speaker, our very own Dr. Sarah Post, will talk about what harmonic maps are and why we should be interested in them. We will also build some examples of harmonic maps and see different applications in geometry, non-Abelian gauge theory, and even biology!

And of course, there will be snacks!!

When: Thursday, October 22
Where: Keller 402
Time: 3:00pm

“Harmonic maps pervade differential geometry and mathematical physics: they include geodesics, minimal surfaces, harmonic functions, abelian integrals, Riemannian fibrations with minimal fibres, holomorphic maps between Kähler manifolds, chiral models, and strings.” – James Eels

Hope to see you there!!
