Associated scholarship(s):21/09650-4 - Bifurcation of minimal surfaces and the first eigenvalue of the Laplacian, BE.EP.PD


We seek to extend the application of the techniques of closed minimal surfaces to the case where they are noncompact and have a boundary, and to explore bifurcation phenomena related to these surfaces in homogeneous 3-manifolds. More specifically, we intend to address the following topics: possible elaboration of a survey about homological systoles in Riemannian manifolds, with the proposal of problems that involve ambients with group actions and generalised geometries, such as Randers metrics (Finsler); to explicitly control the topology of noncompact minimal surfaces with boundary and low index in some 3-dimensional ambients; and to apply bifurcation techniques to prove the abundancy of minimal tori in Berger spheres which are noncongruent to the Clifford torus.
