# An Improved Morse Index Bound of Min-Max Minimal Hypersurfaces.

@article{Li2020AnIM, title={An Improved Morse Index Bound of Min-Max Minimal Hypersurfaces.}, author={Yangyang Li}, journal={arXiv: Differential Geometry}, year={2020} }

In this paper, we give an improved Morse index bound of minimal hypersurfaces from Almgren-Pitts min-max construction in any closed Riemannian manifold $M^{n+1}$ $(n+1 \geq 3$), which generalizes a result by X. Zhou \cite{zhou_multiplicity_2019} for $3 \leq n+1 \leq 7$. The novel techniques are the construction of hierarchical deformations and the restrictive min-max theory. These techniques do not rely on bumpy metrics, and thus could be adapted to many other min-max settings.
