Classification of non-collapsed translators in \(\mathbb{R}^4\)

Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Watch the talk in youtube

Translating solution to the mean curvature flow form, together with self-shrinking solutions, the most important class of singularity models of the flow. When a translator arises as a blow-up of a mean convex mean curvature flow, it also naturally satisfies a non-collapsness condition. In this talk, I will report on a recent work with Kyeongsu Choi and Robert Haslhofer, in which we show that every mean convex, non-collapsed, translator in \(\mathbb{R}^4\) is a member of a one parameter family of translators, which was earlier constructed by Hoffman, Ilmanen, Martín and White.

The Bernstein problem for Euclidean Lipschitz surfaces in the sub-Finsler Heisenberg group \(\mathbb{H}^1\)

Universidad de Granada

Watch the talk in youtube

We shall prove that in the first Heisenberg group with a sub-Finsler structure, a complete, stable, Euclidean Lipschitz and \(H\)-regular surface is a vertical plane. This is joint work with Manuel Ritoré.

The Kulkarni-Pinkall form and locally strictly convex immersions in \(\mathbb{H}^3\)

Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro

Watch the talk in youtube

In this talk we study applications of the Kulkarni-Pinkall form to the study of locally strictly convex immersions in \(\mathbb{H}^3\). We deduce a new a priori estimate which in turn allows us to completely solve the asymptotic Plateau problem for \(k\)-surfaces in hyperbolic space as formulated by Labourie. This work has interesting intersections with a paper of Espinar-Gálvez-Mira. This work appears in https://arxiv.org/abs/2104.03181.

Existence of isoperimetric regions in sub-Finsler nilpotent groups

Universidad de Granada

Watch the talk in youtube

We consider a nilpotent Lie group with a bracket-generating distribution \(\mathcal{H}\) and an asymmetric left-invariant norm \(\|\cdot\|_K\) induced by a convex body \(K\subseteq\mathcal{H}_0\) containing \(0\) in its interior. In this talk, we will associate a left-invariant perimeter functional \(P_K\) to \(K\) following De Giorgi's definition of perimeter and prove the existence of minimizers of \(P_K\) under a volume (Haar measure) constraint. We will also discuss some properties of the isoperimetric regions and the isoperimetric profile.

Ruled real hypersurfaces in \(\mathbb CP^n_p\)

Al.I. Cuza University of Iasi

Watch the talk in youtube

H. Anciaux and K. Panagiotidou [1] initiated the study of non-degenerate real hypersurfaces in non-flat indefinite complex space forms in 2015. Next, in 2019 M. Kimura and M. Ortega [2] further developed their ideas, with a focus on Hopf real hypersurfaces in the indefinite complex projective space \(\mathbb CP^n_p\). In this work we are interested in the study of non-degenerate ruled real hypersurfaces in \(\mathbb CP^n_p\). We first define such hypersurfaces, then give basic characterizations. We also construct their parameterization. They are described as follows. Given a regular curve \(\alpha\) in \(\mathbb CP^n_p\), then the family of the complete, connected, complex \((n − 1)\)-dimensional totally geodesic submanifolds orthogonal to \(\alpha'\) and \(J\alpha'\), where \(J\) is the complex structure, generates a ruled real hypersurface. This representation agrees with the one given by M. Lohnherr and H. Reckziegel in the Riemannian case [3]. Further insights are given into the cases when the ruled real hypersurfaces are minimal or have constant sectional curvatures. The present results are part of a joint work together with prof. M. Ortega and prof. J.D. Pérez.

Mean Curvature Flow with Boundary

Stanford University

Almost all of the extensive research on mean curvature flow has been for surfaces without boundary. However, it is interesting and natural to consider MCF for surfaces with boundary. In this talk, I will describe a useful weak formulation of such flows that gives existence for all time with arbitrary initial data. Furthermore, under rather mild hypotheses on the initial surface, the moving surface remains forever smooth at the boundary, even after singularities may have formed in the interior. On the other hand, if one relaxes those hypotheses, then interesting boundary singularities can occur.

Schwarz-Pick lemma for harmonic maps which are conformal at a point

University of Ljubljana

We obtain a sharp estimate on the norm of the differential of a harmonic map from the unit disc \({\mathbb D}\) in \(\mathbb C\) to the unit ball \({\mathbb B}^n\) in \(\mathbb R^n\), \(n\ge 2\), at any point where the map is conformal. In dimension \(n=2\) this generalizes the classical Schwarz-Pick lemma to harmonic maps \(\mathbb D\to\mathbb D\) which are conformal only at the reference point. In dimensions \(n\ge 3\) it gives the optimal Schwarz-Pick lemma for conformal minimal discs \(\mathbb D\to {\mathbb B}^n\). Let \({\mathcal M}\) denote the restriction of the Bergman metric on the complex \(n\)-ball to the real \(n\)-ball \({\mathbb B}^n\). We show that conformal harmonic immersions \(M \to ({\mathbb B}^n,{\mathcal M})\) from any hyperbolic open Riemann surface \(M\) with its natural Poincaré metric are distance-decreasing, and the isometries are precisely the conformal embeddings of \(\mathbb D\) onto affine discs in \({\mathbb B}^n\). (Joint work with David Kalaj.)

On non-compact free boundary minimal hypersurfaces in the Riemannian Schwarzschild spaces

Universidad Federal de Minas Gerais

We will show that, in contrast with the \(3\)-dimensional case, the Morse index of a free boundary rotationally symmetric totally geodesic hypersurface of the \(n\)-dimensional Riemannnian Schwarzschild space with respect to variations that are tangential along the horizon is zero, for \(n\geq 4\). Moreover, we will show that there exist non-compact free boundary minimal hypersurfaces which are not totally geodesic, \(n\geq 8\), with Morse index equal to \(0\). Also, for \(n\geq 4\), there exist infinitely many non-compact free boundary minimal hypersurfaces, which are not congruent to each other, with infinite Morse index. Finally, we will discuss the density at infinity of a free boundary minimal hypersurface with respect to a minimal cone constructed over a minimal hypersurface of the unit Euclidean sphere. We obtain a lower bound for the density in terms of the area of the boundary of the hypersurface and the area of the minimal hypersurface in the unit sphere. This lower bound is optimal in the sense that only minimal cones achieve it.

A construction of constant mean curvature surfaces in \(\mathbb{H}^2\times \mathbb{R}\) and the Krust property

Universidad de Granada

Watch the talk in youtube

In this talk we will construct via Daniel's sister correspondence in \(\mathbb{H}^2\times\mathbb{R}\) a \(2\)-parameter family of Alexandrov-embedded constant mean curvature \(0\,\)<\(\,H\leq 1/2\) surfaces in \(\mathbb{H}^2\times \mathbb{R}\) with \(2\) ends and genus \(0\). They are symmetric with respect to a horizontal slice and \(k\) vertical planes disposed symmetrically. We will discuss the embeddedness of the constant mean curvature surfaces of this family, and we will show that the Krust property does not hold for \(0\,\)<\(\,H\leq 1/2\); i.e, there are minimal graphs over convex domain in \(\widetilde{\text{SL}}_2(\mathbb{R})\) and \(\text {Nil}_3\) whose sister conjugate surface is not a vertical graph in \(\mathbb{H}^2\times\mathbb{R}\).
