Elliptic Problems in the Study of Selfdual Vortex Configurations

Part of the Progress in Nonlinear Differential Equations and Their Applications book series (PNLDE, volume 72)

The examples of selfdual problems discussed in the previous chapter all share a common equation (see (2.1.1) below), which can be viewed as a gauge-invariant version of the Cauchy–Riemann equation.

Following an approach introduced by Taubes (cf. [JT]), we see next how to use such a property in order to eliminate the gauge invariance from the selfdual equations and formulate them in terms of elliptic problems of the Liouville-type, whose analysis will be the main objective of our study.
