Angular energy quantization for linear elliptic systems with antisymmetric potentials and applications
We establish a quantization result for the angular part of the energy of solutions to elliptic linear systems of Schrödinger type with antisymmetric potentials in two dimensions. This quantization is a consequence of uniform Lorentz–Wente type estimates in degenerating annuli. Moreover this result is optimal in the sense that we exhibit a sequence of functions satisfying our hypothesis whose radial part of the energy is not quantized. We derive from this angular quantization the full energy quantization for general critical points to functionals which are conformally invariant or also for pseudoholomorphic curves on degenerating Riemann surfaces.
