【講演要旨】:The minimal surfaces in R^3 can be constructed easily by using the Weierstrass representation formula. But there is no such formula in S^3, and so only a few families of minimal surfaces have been known to exist in S^3. In this talk we first review the minimal surfaces in S^3 that have been constructed by Lawson(1970), by Karcher-Pinkall-Sterling(1988), and by Kapouleas-Yang(2010). Then we introduce the newly constructed minimal surfaces(2013).
