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.
