Recent progress on the min-max theory of minimal surfaces Zhou, Xin


Minimal surfaces are critical points of the area functional. The min-max theory is a variational theory for constructing saddle point type, unstable minimal surfaces. In this talk, we will survey several recent progresses along this direction. We will start by a brief introduction to the basic ideas of this theory. Then we will discuss recent works in some non-compact manifolds and compact manifolds with possibly nonempty boundary.
