Book Description

This book is concerned with harmonic maps into homogeneous spaces and focuses upon maps of Riemann surfaces into flag manifolds, to bring results of 'twistor methods' for symmetric spaces into a unified framework by using the theory of compact Lie groups and complex differential geometry.
