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.

A Brief Note on Special Lagrangian Submanifolds in $\Bbb{R}^{2n}$

Graham Smith


We study the differential geometry of the Grassmannian of Lagrangian subspaces in $\Bbb{R}^{2n}$, exhibiting in particular a convex funcion whose sublevel set is the space of positive (i.e. spacelike or null) Lagrangian subspaces. We then show how a special Lagrangian immersion in $\Bbb{R}^{2n}$ induces a harmonic immersion in this Grassmannian which allowing us to obtain a rigidity result for positive special Lagrangian submanifolds which are null on a single point.
