**Lectures on Minimal Surface Theory**

by Brian White

**Publisher**: arXiv 2013**Number of pages**: 46

**Description**:

The goal was to give beginning graduate students an introduction to some of the most important basic facts and ideas in minimal surface theory. I have kept prerequisites to a minimum: the reader should know basic complex analysis and elementary differential geometry.
