Minimal surfaces in R^4 : definitions, problems and leads

Time: 15:00 to  16:30 Ngày 25/03/2019

Venue/Location: C2-714, VIASM

Speaker: GS. Marina VILLE( Université de Tours, France)


Minimal surfaces in R^4 have been much less studied than their colleagues in R^3 and yet form a very interesting class of objects. I will recall their definition and formalism and ask some questions.
Then I will recall the basics of knots and links in S^3 and explain how a minimal surfaces of finite curvature in R^4 possesses a link at infinity and I will discuss what information we can get from this link. My talk will self-contained be illustrated by examples. Joint work with Marc Soret.
