A distant flute,--for music's stream can roll
To soothe the heart, and harmonize the soul,--

Each harmonizing part to class,

From these with rare combining skill,
With new-created worlds to fill
Of space the mighty void.

In science:

Furthermore, as the cone on the image of Φ is Lagrangian, one can show that if π : S 5 → CP2 is the Hopf pro jection then π ◦ Φ is conformal and harmonic, so we also have a family of explicit conformal harmonic maps Ψ : R2 → CP2 .
Constructing special Lagrangian m-folds in C^m by evolving quadrics
Then in [11, §6] we work through the integrable systems framework for the corresponding family of harmonic maps Ψ : R2 → CP2 , showing that they are generically superconformal of finite type, and determining their harmonic sequences, Toda solutions, algebras of polynomial Killing fields, and spectral curves.
Constructing special Lagrangian m-folds in C^m by evolving quadrics
The first step, if it is possible, is to form the unique harmonic extension ˜f (z ) to the upper half-plane, characterized by the properties that ˜f (z ) is harmonic and ˜f (x) coincides with f (x) for x real.
Universal Teichmuller Space
In practice, the spherical harmonic expansion is carried out to 15th order in ℓ but the resulting coefficients must then be pro jected into the ℓ ≤ 10 subspace in order to avoid inconsistencies between the spherical harmonic and the grid and Fourier representations.
Characteristic Evolution and Matching
It has been known for a long time that the harmonic coordinates do not belong to the class of Bondi coordinate systems at infinity, because the expansion of the harmonic metric when r → ∞ with t − r/c = constant involves, in addition to the normal powers of 1/r, some powers of the logarithm of r.
