We give an a priori bound on the (n-7)-dimensional measure of the singular set for an area-minimizing n-dimensional hypersurface, in terms of the geometry of its boundary. 
Singularities of minimizing harmonic maps into closed manifolds
Harmonic maps appear naturally in various geometric problems. Let us mention several examples: • ifM is 1-dimensional, harmonic maps are geodesics on N ; • if N = R, harmonic maps are simply harmonicExpand


Optimal regularity for codimension one minimal surfaces with a free boundary
We consider the problem to minimize n-dimensional area among currents T whose boundary (or part of it) is supposed to lie in a given hypersurface S of ℝn+1. We prove dim (sing T)≤n-7. Thus, optimalExpand
Stable embedded minimal surfaces bounded by a straight line
We prove that if $${M\subset \mathbb{R}^3}$$ is a properly embedded oriented stable minimal surface whose boundary is a straight line and the area of M in extrinsic balls grows quadratically in theExpand
Optimal interior and boundary regularity for almost minimizers to elliptic variational integrals
We give a new proof of the small excess regularity theorems for integer multiplicity recti able currents of arbitrary dimension and codimension minimizing an elliptic parametric variational integral.Expand
On the size of the singular set of minimizing harmonic maps into the sphere in dimension three
We consider minimizing harmonic maps from $\Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^3$ into the unit sphere $\mathbb{S}^2$ and extend Almgren and Lieb's linear law on the bound of the singular set as well as HardtExpand
Rectifiability of the singular set of energy minimizing maps

Singularities of energy minimizing maps from the ball to the sphere: Examples, counterexamples, and bounds
We study maps qp from domains Q in R3 to S2 which have prescribed boundary value functions 4 and which minimize Dirichlet's integral energy. Such (p's can have isolated singular points, and ourExpand

The singular structure and regularity of stationary varifolds
If one considers an integral varifold $I^m\subseteq M$ with bounded mean curvature, and if $S^k(I)\equiv\{x\in M: \text{ no tangent cone at $x$ is }k+1\text{-symmetric}\}$ is the standardExpand
Rectifiable-Reifenberg and the Regularity of Stationary and Minimizing Harmonic Maps
In this paper we study the regularity of stationary and minimizing harmonic maps $f:B_2(p)\subseteq M\to N$ between Riemannian manifolds. If $S^k(f)\equiv\{x\in M: \text{ no tangent map at $x$ isExpand
Lower bounds on Ricci curvature and quantitative behavior of singular sets
Let Yn denote the Gromov-Hausdorff limit $M^{n}_{i}\stackrel{d_{\mathrm{GH}}}{\longrightarrow} Y^{n}$ of v-noncollapsed Riemannian manifolds with ${\mathrm{Ric}}_{M^{n}_{i}}\geq-(n-1)$. The singularExpand
