We have decided to discontinue the publication of preprints on our preprint server as of 1 March 2024. The publication culture within mathematics has changed so much due to the rise of repositories such as ArXiV (www.arxiv.org) that we are encouraging all institute members to make their preprints available there. An institute's repository in its previous form is, therefore, unnecessary. The preprints published to date will remain available here, but we will not add any new preprints here.
Representations of fundamental groups of algebraic manifolds and their restrictions to fibers of a fibration
Jürgen Jost and Kang Zuo
We use pluriharmonic maps to study representations of fundamental groups of algebraic manifolds. This approach is functorial in the sense that the restriction of such a map to a fiber of a fibration remains pluriharmonic, and on this basis, we can investigate the relation between the properties of the original representation and what can be inferred by restricting it to the fibers of a fibration.
