Abstract or Additional Information

In this talk I will briefly introduce conformal heat flow of harmonic maps.
First, I introduce heat flow of harmonic maps of Struwe, and its general properties.
Then I give an example of finite-time singularity by Chang-Ding-Ye and more refined example by Davila-del Pino-Wei.
Finally, I introduce an idea to delay singular time by forcing metric of the domain subject to a flow equation.
