Minimal immersions of surfaces by the first Eigenfunctions and conformal area


Let 0: M-,S" be a minimal immersion of a compact surface into a unit sphere. Then, the linear functions of 0 are eigenfunctions for the Laplacian of M corresponding to the eigenvalue 2=2 . The main purpose of this paper is to study those minimal surfaces for which 2 is exactly the first non-zero eigenvalue of its Laplacian. This kind of immersions have a… (More)
