Biharmonic maps into a Riemannian manifold of non-positive curvature

Nakauchi, Nobumitsu; Urakawa, Hajime and Gudmundsson, Sigmundur LU (2014) In Geometriae Dedicata 169. p.263-272
Abstract
We study biharmonic maps between Riemannian manifolds with finite energy and finite bi-energy. We show that if the domain is complete and the target of non-positive curvature, then such a map is harmonic. We then give applications to isometric immersions and horizontally conformal submersions.
