If you have a question about this talk, please contact nobody. A minimal surface in euclidean space is a surface which is locally of least area (that is, any perturbation on a small region will increase the area). These surfaces have captured the imagination of geometers and analysts from Riemann and Weierstrauss to the present day, where they have evolved to become an important tool in modern geometric analysis. This lecture will give an introduction to the basic geometry of minimal surfaces in R In the second part of the lecture I will discuss minimal surfaces in a more general context. Examples will include compact minimal surfaces of arbitrary genus in the euclidean 3-sphere S This talk is part of the Rouse Ball Lectures series. ## This talk is included in these lists:- All CMS events
