|TITLE||[GS_M_All] Three W's Seminar: Flat structures on soap films|
The modern theory of minimal surfaces offers spectacular applications to, for instance, the three dimensional topology and geometry, positive mass conjecture in mathematical relativity, and the Ricci flow proof of Poincare conjecture. In this talk, we shall present explicit examples of negatively curved minimal surfaces, which can be characterized by flat structures introduced by Chern and Ricci.
