We show that there exist infinitely many metrics on S which provide a discrete family of non congruent embedded minimal tori in S. In particular, we obtain a metric which gives a foliation in the once punctured RP 3 whose leaves are pairwise non congruent embedded minimal tori. This contrasts with the recent solution of a well known conjecture of H.B. Lawson. 
The Gauss map of minimal surfaces in Berger spheres
It is proved that a pair of spinors satisfying a Dirac type equation represents surfaces immersed in Berger spheres with prescribed mean curvature. Using this, we prove that the Gauss map of aExpand
Biharmonic lifts by means of pseudo-Riemannian submersions in dimension three
We study the total lifts of curves by means of a submersion π: M 3 s → B 2 r that satisfy the condition ΔH = λH analyzing, in particular, the cases in which the submersion has totally geodesic fibresExpand
Willmore energy estimates in conformal Berger spheres
Abstract We obtain isoperimetric inequalities for the Willmore energy of Hopf tori in a wide class of conformal structures on the three sphere. This class includes, on the one hand, the family ofExpand
Non-standard 3-spheres locally foliated by elastic helices
In this note we use the Hopf map to construct a family of metrics in the 3-sphere parametrized on the space of positive smooth functions in the 2-sphere. All these metrics make the Hopf map aExpand
Reduction of variables for Willmore-Chen submanifolds in seven spheres
We obtain a reduction of variables criterion for 4-dimensional Willmore-Chen submanifolds associated with the generalized Kaluza-Klein conformal structures on the 7-sphere. This argument connects theExpand
Some examples of critical points for the total mean curvature functional
Abstract We study the following problem: establish existence and classification of closed curves which are critical points for the total curvature functional, defined on spaces of curves in aExpand
Epicycloids generating Hamiltonian minimal surfaces in the complex quadric
Abstract We show that Hopf tubes on Lancret curves shaped over an epicycloid are Hamiltonian minimal surfaces in the complex quadric. Moreover they are the only Hopf tubes that are HamiltonianExpand
Bosonic string theory in Lorentzian principal circle bundles over anti-de-Sitter space AdS3
Abstract In this note we show a bosonic conformal string theory on U (1)-bundles over AdS 3 . To this end, we first look for r -elastic helices in the space AdS 3 , because they generate solutions ofExpand

The space of minimal embeddings of a surface into a three-dimensional manifold of positive Ricci curvature
In this paper we obtain a curvature estimate for embedded minimal surfaces in a three-dimensional manifold of positive Ricci curvature in terms of the geometry of the ambient manifold and the genusExpand
Solutions of the Betchov-Da Rios soliton equation in the anti-De Sitter 3-space
In the three-dimensional anti-De Sitter space we study solutions of the Betchov-Da Rios soliton equation and find that they are helices sweeping out a B-scroll. The soliton solutions are preciselyExpand
