Book DetailsAdvances in Soviet MathematicsVolume: 15; 1993; 342 ppMSC: Primary 05; 53; 58; Secondary 81
This book contains recent results from a group focusing on minimal surfaces in the Moscow State University seminar on modern geometrical methods, headed by A. V. Bolsinov, A. T. Fomenko, and V. V. Trofimov. The papers collected here fall into three areas: onedimensional minimal graphs on Riemannian surfaces and the Steiner problem, twodimensional minimal surfaces and surfaces of constant mean curvature in threedimensional Euclidean space, and multidimensional globally minimal and harmonic surfaces in Riemannian manifolds. The volume opens with an exposition of several important problems in the modern theory of minimal surfaces that will be of interest to newcomers to the field. Prepared with attention to clarity and accessibility, these papers will appeal to mathematicians, physicists, and other researchers interested in the application of geometrical methods to specific problems.
