Geometric features of fractional minimal surfaces and their generalization to higher codimension


In this talk, I will explain why fractional (or nonlocal) minimal surfaces are ideal objects to which min-max methods can be applied on Riemannian manifolds. After a short introduction about these objects and how they approximate minimal surfaces, I will present a vision for the future on how to generalize this setting to higher codimension.
