DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Nicolas Manrique (Imperial College)\n\nTitle: A non-
linear spectrum for the Plateau problem\n\nAbstract: \n\nThe production
of minimal surfaces by min-max methods has seen immense progress in the
past decade\, culminating in the resolution by Song of Yau’s conjecture
on the existence of infinitely many closed minimal surfaces in any close
d manifold. Central to these arguments is the notion of a volume spectru
m\, a non-linear analogue of the usual Laplacian spectrum which records
the volume of certain minimal surfaces in the manifold. One can also ask
Yau’s question for closed minimal surfaces lying in a fixed homology cl
ass\, or for minimal surfaces with prescribed boundary. In this talk we
will describe an approach to these latter problems via the theory of pha
se transitions\, and describe some properties and specific cases of the
spectra which arise.
