Abstract:
The harmonic spheres conjecture relates Yang–Mills fields on $\mathbb R^4$ with gauge group $G$ with harmonic maps of the Riemann sphere $S^2$ into the loop space $\Omega G$ of the group $G$. This
conjecture is a generalization to arbitrary Yang–Mills $G$fields of Atiyah–Donaldson theorem establishing a $1$–$1$ correspondence between the moduli space of $G$instantons on $\mathbb R^4$ and the space of based holomorphic maps $S^2\to\Omega G$.
In our talk we shall consider a possible way to prove the harmonic spheres conjecture using the adiabatic limit construction for the Yang–Mills equations on $S^4$ proposed by A. D. Popov. The Popov construction employs a nice parameterization of the sphere $S^4\setminus S^1$ without a circle, found by Jarvis and Norbury.
Using this parameterization it is possible to associate in a natural way with arbitrary Yang–Mills $G$field on $S^4$ a harmonic map of the sphere $S^2$ into the loop space $\Omega G$.
