Min-max constructions of 2d-minimal surfaces


Pellandini, F M. Min-max constructions of 2d-minimal surfaces. 2010, University of Zurich, Faculty of Science.

Abstract

In this thesis we will present (following [CDL03]) the proof of the existence of closed embedded minimal surfaces in a closed 3-dimensional manifold constructed via min-max arguments and we will prove genus bounds for the produced surfaces. A stronger estimate was announced by Pitts and Rubinstein but to our knowledge its proof has never been
published. Our proof follows ideas of Simon and uses an extension of a famous result of Meeks, Simon and Yau on the convergence of minimizing sequences of isotopic surfaces.
