Can you hear the degree of a map from the circle into itself? An intriguing story which is not yet finished (ENGLISH)
[ 講演概要 ]
A few years ago - following a suggestion by I. M. Gelfand - I discovered an intriguing connection between the topological degree of a map from the circle into itself and its Fourier coefficients. This relation is easily justified when the map is smooth. However, the situation turns out to be much more delicate if one assumes only continuity, or even Holder continuity. I will present recent developments and open problems. The initial motivation for this direction of research came from the analysis of the Ginzburg-Landau model.
