Abstract

In this paper, we investigate p-biharmonic maps u : (M, g) (N, h) from a Riemannian manifold into a Riemannian manifold with non-positive sectional curvature. We obtain that if < and < , then u is harmonic, where is a nonnegative constant and . We also obtain that any weakly convex p-biharmonic hypersurfaces in space formN(c) with is minimal. These results give affirmative partial answer to Conjecture 2 (generalized Chen's conjecture for p-biharmonic submanifolds).
