Title: Harmonic Maps of Surfaces into De Sitter Spaces

Abstract: De Sitter spaces S(m, 1) are the spheres in 
Minkowski space R(m, 1) and are fundamental examples 
of non-compact symmetric spaces. We shall explain how 
harmonic maps of surfaces into S(2n, 1) can be studied 
more simply by viewing their lifts into appropriate 
flag manifolds, and applying integrable systems 
techniques. The flag manifold in question depends upon 
the isotropy order of the harmonic map.
