Aryanejad Y. Harmonicity and Minimality of Vector Fields on Lorentzian Lie Groups. IJMSI. 2020; 15 (1) :65-78
URL: http://ijmsi.ir/article-1-809-en.html

‎We consider four-dimensional lie groups equipped with‎ ‎left-invariant Lorentzian Einstein metrics‎, ‎and determine the harmonicity properties ‎of vector fields on these spaces‎. ‎In some cases‎, ‎all these vector fields are critical points for the energy functional ‎restricted to vector fields‎. ‎We also classify vector fields defining harmonic maps‎, ‎and calculate explicitly the energy of these vector ‎fields‎. ‎Then we study the minimality of critical points for the energy functional‎.
