Minimal hypersurfaces with free boundary and positive scalar curvature


There is a well-known technique due to Schoen-Yau from the late 70s which uses (stable) minimal hypersurfaces to find topological implications of a (closed) manifold's ability to support positive scalar curvature metrics. In this talk, we describe a version of this technique for manifolds with boundary and discuss how it can be used to study bordisms of positive scalar curvature metrics.
