@article{Siffert2015HarmonicSO, title={Harmonic Self-maps of \$\mbox\{SU\}(3)\$}, author={Anna Siffert}, journal={arXiv: Classical Analysis and ODEs}, year={2015} }

By constructing solutions of a singular boundary value problem we prove the existence of a countably infinite family of harmonic self-maps of $\mbox{SU}(3)$ with non-trivial, i.e. $\neq 0,\pm 1$, Brouwer degree.

Mathematics

The harmonic Hopf construction is an equivariant ansatz for harmonic maps between Euclidean spheres. We prove existence of solutions in the case that has been open. Moreover, we show that the…

We provide an infinite family of homogeneous polynomial self-maps of spheres. Furthermore, we identify the gradient map of the Cartan–Münzner polynomial as a member of this infinite family and thus…

We prove that a necessary condition for the existence of the remaining problem in the harmonic Hopf construction is also sufficient. We also give some topological applications based on our result.

We construct natural self-maps of compact cohomogeneity one manifolds and compute their degrees and Lefschetz numbers. On manifolds with simple cohomology rings this yields relations between the…
