By Anthony Tromba

One of the main hassle-free questions in arithmetic is whether or not a space minimizing floor spanning a contour in 3 area is immersed or no longer; i.e. does its by-product have maximal rank all over.

The goal of this monograph is to give an hassle-free facts of this very basic and gorgeous mathematical end result. The exposition follows the unique line of assault initiated through Jesse Douglas in his Fields medal paintings in 1931, specifically use Dirichlet's strength in place of quarter. Remarkably, the writer exhibits how one can calculate arbitrarily excessive orders of derivatives of Dirichlet's strength outlined at the limitless dimensional manifold of all surfaces spanning a contour, breaking new floor within the Calculus of diversifications, the place quite often purely the second one by-product or edition is calculated. 

The monograph starts off with effortless examples resulting in an evidence in plenty of instances that may be provided in a graduate direction in both manifolds or advanced research. therefore this monograph calls for merely the main uncomplicated wisdom of study, complicated research and topology and will as a result be learn via virtually somebody with a simple graduate education.
