Franc Forstnerič (Ljubljana) will speak in the differential geometry seminar at 2pm on 22/01/2024, in the Salle des Profs (9th floor of building NO). Franc’s title is “Minimal surfaces with symmetries” and his abstract is below.

*Objects with symmetries are of special interest in any mathematical theory. In this lecture, I will present recent results on the existence of orientable minimal surfaces in Euclidean spaces with any given finite group of symmetries induced by orthogonal transformations of the ambient space.*
