MiS Preprint Repository

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 ( 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.

Maps With Prescribed Tension Fields

Wenyi Chen and Jürgen Jost


We consider maps into a Riemannian manifold of nonpositive sectional curvature with prescribed tension field. We derive a priori estimates and solve a Dirichlet problem.
