Title: Min-max theory for Toda systems

Abstract: We consider a coupled system of Liouville equations motivated by the study of non-abelian Chern-Simons vortices, which also describe holomorphic curves in projective spaces. We use covering and topological arguments to derive general existence results. These are joint works with L. Battaglia, A. Jevnikar, C. Ndiaye and D. Ruiz.
