Concentration Compactness for critical Wave Maps

Joachim Krieger, University of Pennsylvania
Fine Hall 314

This talk will discuss a recent result on global regularity and asymptotic behavior of large critical wave maps with hyperbolic target, obtained jointly with W. Schlag. The proof relies on an adaptation of the recently developed method of Kenig-Merle to the case of systems of wave equations, as well as the harmonic analytic methods devised by Klainerman-Machedon, Tataru and Tao.
