Abstract: In spite of the abundance of publications on harmonic mappings of manifolds, at present there exists neither a theory of harmonic diffeomorphisms, nor a definition of infinitesimal harmonic transformation of a Riemannian manifold, to say nothing of the theory of groups of such transformations. In the paper, this gap is partially filled, and a new subject of investigations is announced.
