Geometric convergence results for closed minimal surfaces via bubbling analysis

Lucas Ambrozio, Reto Buzano, Alessandro Carlotto, Ben Sharp

Published 2018-03-13Version 1

We present some geometric applications, of global character, of the bubbling analysis developed by Buzano and Sharp for closed minimal surfaces, obtaining smooth multiplicity one convergence results under upper bounds on the Morse index and suitable lower bounds on either the genus or the area. For instance, we show that given any Riemannian metric of positive scalar curvature on the three-dimensional sphere the class of embedded minimal surfaces of index one and genus $\gamma$ is sequentially compact for any $\gamma\geq 1$. Furthemore, we give a quantitative description of how the genus drops as a sequence of minimal surfaces converges smoothly, with mutiplicity $m\geq 1$, away from finitely many points where curvature concentration may happen. This result exploits a sharp estimate on the multiplicity of convergence in terms of the number of ends of the bubbles that appear in the process.
