Continuous deformations of harmonic maps and their unitons
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
It is known that any harmonic map of finite uniton number from a Riemann surface into U (n) can be deformed into a new harmonic map with an associated S1-invariant extended solution. We study this deformation in detail using operator-theoretic methods. In particular, we show that the corresponding unitons are real analytic functions of the deformation parameter, and that the deformation is closely related to the Bruhat decomposition of the corresponding extended solution.
