Volume Minimization and Comparison for Isotropic Surfaces

COMPLEX GEOMETRY SEMINAR
Topic:Volume Minimization and Comparison for Isotropic Surfaces
Speaker:Ed Goldstein
Affiliation:IAS
Date:Tuesday, February 22
Time/Room:2:30pm - 4:00pm/Fine Hall 110

We'll start by exhibiting volume-minimizing properties for certain isotropic submanifolds in complex projective spaces via integral geometry. This will lead us to a problem of finding the infimum of areas for isotropic surfaces with a given boundary in a Kahler manifold.
