THE RADIUS OF VANISHING BUBBLES IN EQUIVARIANT
HARMONIC MAP FLOW FROM D2
TO S2
S. B. ANGENENT, J. HULSHOF, AND H. MATANO§
Abstract. We derive an upper bound for the radius R(t) of a vanishing bubble in a family of
equivariant maps Ft : D2 S2 which evolve by the harmonic map flow. The self-similar "type 1"
radius would be R(t) = C

T - t. We prove that R(t) = o(T - t).
Key words. harmonic map flow, asymptotics, singularities
