Harmonically representing topological classes

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    The purpose of this article is to present a survey on some profound constructs which connect a broad range of subjects including topological classes and their harmonic representatives, calculus of variations and partial differential equations, and soliton solutions, especially the Yang-Mills instantons, in quantum field theory. Throughout, the analytic technicalities involved will be kept to the minimum but the beautiful interaction of different areas of mathematics and physics will be emphasized.
