MINIMIZING HARMONIC MAPS IN HIGHER DIMENSIONS 25 This completes the proof. 9, we have the following compactness result of minimizing harmonic maps, due to [171] and [140]. 13 Let ui ∈ W 1,2 (Ω, N ) be a sequence of minimizing harmonic maps. 1,2 If ui → u weakly in W 1,2 (Ω, N ), then ui → u strongly in Wloc (Ω, N ) and u is a minimizing harmonic map. Proof. For any unit ball B1 ⊂⊂ Ω and a small λ ∈ (0, 1), let w ∈ H 1 (B, N ) be such that w = u on B1 \ B1−λ . By Fatou’s lemma and Fubini’s theorem, there is ρ ∈ (1 − λ0 , 1) such that lim i→∞ ∂Bρ |ui − u|2 dH n−1 = 0, ∂Bρ |∇ui |2 + |∇w|2 dH n−1 ≤ C < +∞.

3 (i) The real analyticity of N plays a crucial role for the uniqueness of minimizing tangent maps of a minimizing harmonic map at its isolated singular points. White [209] constructed a Riemannian manifold N which is not real analytic such that there exists an energy minimizing map into N that has infinitely many tangent maps at its isolated singularity. (ii) Gulliver-White [64] constructed a real analytic Riemannian manifold N and an energy minimizing map u from M to N with an isolated singular point x 0 ∈ M with the property that the convergence of u to its tangent map at x 0 has at most logarithmic decay.

Now letting P = Π Π◦Φ on Nδ on RL \ Nδ , we find that BR |∇P |2 ≤ [cLip(Π)]2 dist−2 (y, X). BR To see that the latter integral is finite, we may assume that X is an affine space of dimension at most (L − 3), so that dist−2 (y, X) BR is finite by Fubini’s theorem. g. h is a harmonic extension). However, the image of h may not be contained in N . To correct this, we compose h with a suitable projection onto N . 21, and let B ⊂ RL be a large ball containing N ∪ X. For τ < min{δ, dist(N ∪ X, ∂B)} and a point a ∈ B τ = {y ∈ RL | |y| < τ }, define Ba = B + {a} and Xa = X + {a} and the projection Pa : Ba \ Xa → N by Pa (y) = P (y − a).
