Harmonic functions and topology of complete manifolds
Harmonic function is one of the simplest, yet most important
analytical objects. In this talk, we will try to explain some
results relating harmonic functions to the topology of the
underlying manifold such as the size of the fundamental group
and the number of connected components at infinity. Some of the
applications will also be mentioned.
