Prof. Dr. Tobias Lamm (Institut für Technologie, Karlsruhe):
Willmore surfaces in Riemannian manifolds
Wednesday, 28.11.2012 16:15 im Raum M5
In this talk I will discuss joint work with Jan Metzger (Potsdam) on the Willmore functional of immersed surfaces in Riemannian manifolds subject to a small area constraint. We show that for small enough area there are smooth minimizers that concentrate near points of maximal scalar curvature.
