Analysis Seminar

The stable Bernstein theorem for minimal surfaces

Speaker: Chao Li, NYU Courant

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 1302

Date: Thursday, September 8, 2022, 11 a.m.


In this talk, I will discuss the Bernstein problem for minimal surfaces, and explain the solution to the stable Bernstein problem for minimal hypersurfaces in R4. Precisely, we show that a complete, two-sided, stable minimal hypersurface in R4 is flat.

This is based on joint work with Otis Chodosh.
