Variational Methods in Geometry Seminar

Existence of infinitely many minimal hypersurfaces in closed manifolds
Antoine Song
3:30pm | Simonyi Hall 101
In the early 80’s, Yau conjectured that in any closed 3-manifold there should be infinitely many minimal surfaces. I will review previous contributions to the question and...
