Abstract

Harmonic maps have found various applications in Teichmuller theory. While Teichmuller space describes conformal (or hyperbolic) structures on a surface, harmonic maps provide a parametrization on Teichmuller space (via their Hopf differentials) as well as a distance function (the Teichmuller metric). Beginning with a 2-dimensional simplicial complex, we first describe several spaces of metrics. We then show the existence of harmonic maps between such spaces, in the hopes of adding the analytic tools of harmonic maps to the Teichmuller spaces of simplicial complexes. This is joint work with Victoria Gras Andreu.
