Connected surfaces with boundary minimizing the Willmore energy

13 Nov 2019 Novaga Matteo Pozzetta Marco

For a given family of smooth closed curves $\gamma^1,...,\gamma^\alpha\subset\mathbb{R}^3$ we consider the problem of finding an elastic \emph{connected} compact surface $M$ with boundary $\gamma=\gamma^1\cup...\cup\gamma^\alpha$. This is realized by minimizing the Willmore energy $\mathcal{W}$ on a suitable class of competitors... (read more)
