Fractional harmonic maps and applications (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Fractional harmonic mappings are critical points of a generalized Dirichlet Energy where the gradient is replaced with a (non-local) differential operator.
I will present aspects of the regularity theory of (non-local) fractional harmonic maps into manifolds, which extends (and contains) the theory of (poly-)harmonic mappings.
I also will mention, how one can show regularity for critical points of the Moebius (Knot-) Energy, applying the techniques developed in this theory.
