Harmonic quasisometric maps Joint with Dominique Hulin. 1. The result We deal with Hadamard manifolds, i.e. complete simply connected nonpositively curved Riemannian manifolds. Say it is pinched if sectional curvature is between two negative constants. Harmonic maps are critical points … Continue reading
