Thierry de Pauw (Paris): Existence and regularity for the Plateau problem : Classical results and not so recent developments

Academic or specialist Colloquium / Congress / Forum

I will explain two models for Plateau's problem in Euclidean space, one introduced by E.R. Reifenberg, the other due to H. Federer and W.H. Fleming. I will discuss existence issues in both settings and describe a recent positive result.
