Abstract: We study the existence and uniqueness problems for Hermitian harmonic maps from Hermitian manifolds with boundary to Riemannian manifolds of nonpositive sectional curvature and with convex boundary. The complex analyticity of such maps and the related rigidity problems are also investigated.
