Energy quantization for harmonic maps

Fang H. Lin, Tristan Rivière

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we establish the higher-dimensional energy bubbling results for harmonic maps to spheres. We have shown in particular that the energy density of concentrations has to be the sum of energies of harmonic maps from the standard 2-dimensional spheres. The result also applies to the structure of tangent maps of stationary harmonic maps at either a singularity or infinity.
