Lewy’s theorem fails in higher dimensions. (English) Zbl 0711.31003
In Bull. Am. Math. Soc. 42, 689-692 (1936; Zbl 0015.15903), H. Lewy showed that, if \(n=2\), a one-to-one harmonic map of \({\mathbb{R}}^ n\) to itself has non-vanishing Jacobian. The author gives a simple example to show that Lewy’s theorem fails for \(n\geq 3\).
