Abstract (English)

The main result of Chapter 1 is short time existence of the heat flow for Dirac-harmonic maps on closed manifolds. Dirac-harmonic maps are the critical points of a functional motivated by the supersymmetric non-linear sigma model from quantum field theory. Finding non-trivial examples for Dirac-harmonic maps turned out to be a rather challenging task and not many examples were known. With the aim ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Das Hauptresultat von Kapitel 1 ist die Kurzzeitexistenz des Wärmeflusses für Dirac-harmonische Abbildungen auf geschlossenen Mannigfaltigkeiten. Dirac-harmonische Abbildungen sind die kritischen Punkte von einem Funktional, welches motiviert ist durch das supersymmetrische nicht-lineare Sigma-Modell aus der Quantenfeldtheorie. Nicht-triviale Beispiele für Dirac-harmonische Abbildungen zu finden ...
