However, many people sometimes feel confused to get those things. Feeling the limited of experience and sources to be better is one of the lacks to own. However, there is a very simple thing that(More)
Let M<=R be a minimal surface. A domain Z><= M is an open connected set with compact closure D and such that its boundary dD is a finite union of piecewise smooth curves. We say that D is stable if D is a minimum for the area function of the induced metric, for all variations of D which keep dD fixed. In this note we announce the following estimate of the(More)
The last ten years have seen an intense activity on certain questions that arise in connection with the study of minimal surfaces. Among such questions one should mention those of regularity, embeddability, stability and finiteness of the number of minimal surfaces spanning a given boundary. In this lecture I would like to describe a few ideas, results and(More)
