Minimal hypersurfaces for generic metrics in dimension 8

. We show that in an 8-dimensional closed Riemmanian manifold with C ∞ -generic metrics, every minimal hypersurface is smooth and nondegenerate. This confirms a full generic regularity conjecture of

Mean Convex Smoothing of Mean Convex Cones

We show that any minimizing hypercone can be perturbed into one side to a properly embedded smooth minimizing hypersurface in the Euclidean space, and every viscosity mean convex cone admits a

Singular behavior and generic regularity of min-max minimal hypersurfaces

We show that for a generic $8$-dimensional Riemannian manifold with positive Ricci curvature, there exists a smooth minimal hypersurface. Without the curvature condition, we show that for a dense set


For Γn−1 ⊂ ∂B1 ⊂ R, consider Σ ⊂ B1 a hypersurface with ∂Σ = Γ, with least area among all such surface. (This is known as the Plateau problem). It might happen that Σ is singular. For example,

Mean curvature flow with generic low-entropy initial data

. We prove that sufficiently low-entropy closed hypersurfaces can be perturbed so that their mean curvature flow encounters only spherical and cylindrical singularities. Our theorem applies to all



Existence of Infinitely Many Minimal Hypersurfaces in Higher-dimensional Closed Manifolds with Generic Metrics

In this paper, we show that a closed manifold $M^{n+1} (n\geq 7)$ endowed with a $C^\infty$-generic (Baire sense) metric contains infinitely many singular minimal hypersurfaces with optimal

On the bumpy metrics theorem for minimal submanifolds

This paper proves several natural generalizations of the theorem that for a generic, $C^k$ Riemannian metric on a smooth manifold, there are no closed, embedded, minimal submanifolds with nontrivial

Compactness of minimal hypersurfaces with bounded index

We prove a compactness result for minimal hypersurfaces with bounded index and volume, which can be thought of as an extension of the compactness theorem of Choi-Schoen (Invent. Math. 1985) to higher

Existence of minimal hypersurfaces in complete manifolds of finite volume

We prove that every complete non-compact manifold of finite volume contains a (possibly non-compact) minimal hypersurface of finite volume. The main tool is the following result of independent

Min–max theory for constant mean curvature hypersurfaces

In this paper, we develop a min–max theory for the construction of constant mean curvature (CMC) hypersurfaces of prescribed mean curvature in an arbitrary closed manifold. As a corollary, we prove

Singular homologically area minimizing surfaces of codimension one in Riemannian manifolds

Abstract. For n≥7, it is shown how to construct examples of smooth, compact Riemannian manifolds (Nn+1,g), with non-trivial n dimensional integer homology, such that for some Γ∈Hn(N,Z), the

Here we initiate the study of the following problem. Let Ω be a compact domain in a Riemannian manifold such that ∂Ω is of minimum area for the contained volume. Can ∂Ω be approximated by smooth

Existence of hypersurfaces with prescribed mean curvature I – generic min-max

We prove that, for a generic set of smooth prescription functions $h$ on a closed ambient manifold, there always exists a nontrivial, smooth, closed hypersurface of prescribed mean curvature $h$. The

We prove that in a closed manifold of dimension between 3 and 7 with a bumpy metric, the min-max minimal hypersurfaces associated with the volume spectrum introduced by Gromov, Guth, Marques-Neves,

A general regularity theory for stable codimension 1 integral varifolds

We give a necessary and sufficient geometric structural condition, which we call the a -Structural Hypothesis, for a stable codimension 1 integral varifold on a smooth Riemannian manifold to
