Bernstein and Liouville-type theorems in the study of singularities.

Speaker:Prof. Leon Simon
Time: Fri. 16:00 -17:00,2021 - 3 - 12


After a brief discussion of the classical Bernstein theorem for solutions of the minimal surface equation in $\R^{2}$ and the Liouville theorem for harmonic functions, the talk will move on to discuss how such classical theorems have, even up to the present day, influenced and aided efforts to understand singularities of minimal submanifolds.
