# Minimal Surfaces of Codimension One by Umberto Massari By Umberto Massari

This ebook provides a unified presentation of other mathematical instruments used to resolve classical difficulties like Plateau's challenge, Bernstein's challenge, Dirichlet's challenge for the minimum floor Equation and the Capillary challenge. the elemental thought is a fairly effortless geometrical definition of codimension one surfaces. The isoperimetric estate of the Euclidean balls, including the fashionable concept of partial differential equations are used to resolve the nineteenth Hilbert challenge. additionally integrated is a latest mathematical therapy of capillary difficulties.
