Dirac-harmonic maps (f,φ) consist of a map f:M→ N and a twisted spinor φ∈Γ(Σ M⊗ f*TN) and they are defined as critical points of the super-symmetric energy functional.
A Dirac-harmonic map is called uncoupled, if f is a harmonic map.
We show that under some minimality assumption Dirac-harmonic maps defined on a closed domain are uncoupled.
This raises the question whether all Dirac-harmonic maps with closed domain are uncoupled.
