Title: Constant Mean Curvature surfaces
Speaker: Prof. Rukmini Dey (HRI)
Date: 05 June 2014
Time: 3:30 - 4:30 p.m.
Venue: Lecture Hall I, Department of Mathematics
In this expository talk, I will focus on CMC surfaces which are not minimal surfaces. I will talk about the link between CMC surfaces and integrable systems. I will then talk about how CMC surfaces fall out of a constrained optimization problem. I will give examples of rotational and helicoidal CMC surfaces and the isometry between them. If time permits I will talk about the classification of CMC surfaces, namely its Weirstrass representation.
