    Contemporary Mathematics
    Volume: 5422011
    MSC: Primary 53; 58; Secondary 15; 35; 49; 57; 81;

    This volume contains the proceedings of a conference held in Cagliari, Italy, from September 7–10, 2009, to celebrate John C. Wood's 60th birthday.

    These papers reflect the many facets of the theory of harmonic maps and its links and connections with other topics in Differential and Riemannian Geometry. Two long reports, one on constant mean curvature surfaces by F. Pedit and the other on the construction of harmonic maps by J. C. Wood, open the proceedings. These are followed by a mix of surveys on Prof. Wood's area of expertise: Lagrangian surfaces, biharmonic maps, locally conformally Kähler manifolds and the DDVV conjecture, as well as several research papers on harmonic maps. Other research papers in the volume are devoted to Willmore surfaces, Goldstein-Pedrich flows, contact pairs, prescribed Ricci curvature, conformal fibrations, the Fadeev-Hopf model, the Compact Support Principle and the curvature of surfaces.

    Readership
