# Minimal discs in hyperbolic space bounded by a quasicircle at infinity

@article{Seppi2014MinimalDI, title={Minimal discs in hyperbolic space bounded by a quasicircle at infinity}, author={Andrea Seppi}, journal={arXiv: Differential Geometry}, year={2014} }

We prove that the supremum of principal curvatures of a minimal embedded disc in hyperbolic three-space spanning a quasicircle in the boundary at infinity is estimated in a sublinear way by the norm of the quasicircle in the sense of universal Teichmuller space, if the quasicircle is sufficiently close to being the boundary of a totally geodesic plane. As a by-product we prove that there is a universal constant C independent of the genus such that if the Teichmuller distance between the ends of…
