New characterizations of the catenoid and helicoid


Bernstein and Breiner found a characterization of the catenoid that the area of a minimal annulus in a slab is bigger than that of the maximally stable catenoid in the same slab. We give a simpler proof of their theorem and extend the theorem to some minimal surfaces with genus (joint work with Benoit Daniel). New characterizations of the helicoid recently proved by Eunjoo Lee will be also presented.
