Regularity of the Gauss curvature flow

ESB 2012 (PIMS)
Tue 4 Apr 2017, 3:30pm4:30pm
Abstract
We will discuss about the regularity of the Gauss curvature flow: the optimal $C^{1,\frac{1}{n1}}$ regularity of degenerate solutions with flat sides and the interior $C^{\infty}$ regularity of strictly convex solutions.

Minmax minimal hypersurfaces with free boundary

ESB 2012
Tue 11 Apr 2017, 3:30pm4:30pm
Abstract
I will present a joint work with Martin Li. Minimal surfaces with free boundary are natural critical points of the area functional in compact smooth manifolds with boundary. In this talk, I will describe a general existence theory for minimal surfaces with free boundary. In particular, I will show the existence of a smooth embedded minimal hypersurface with free boundary in any compact smooth Euclidean domain. The minimal surfaces with free boundary were constructed using the minmax method. I will explain the basic ideas behind the minmax theory as well as our new contributions.

Prescribing the curvature of hyperbolic convex bodies

Time and Location TBA
Fri 12 May 2017, 1:00pm2:00pm
Abstract
The Gauss curvature of a convex body can be seen as a measure on the unit sphere (with some properties). For such a measure $\mu$, Alexandrov problem consists in proving the existence of a convex body whose curvature measure is $\mu$. In the Euclidean space, this problem is equivalent to an optimal transport problem on the sphere.
In this talk I will consider Alexandrov problem for convex bodies of the hyperbolic space. After defining the curvature measure, I will explain how to relate this problem to a non linear Kantorovich problem on the sphere and how to solve it.
Joint work with J\’er\^ome Bertrand.
