Genus bounds for minimal surfaces arising from min-max constructions


De Lellis, C; Pellandini, F (2010). Genus bounds for minimal surfaces arising from min-max constructions. Journal für die Reine und Angewandte Mathematik, 2010(644):47-99.

Abstract

In this paper we prove genus bounds for closed embedded minimal surfaces in a closed 3-dimensional manifold constructed via min-max arguments. 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. This result is proved in the second part of the paper.
