Katrin Leschke: The associated families of isothermic, CMC and constrained Willmore surfaces

1:00pm, CM301

Isothermic surfaces are surfaces which have a conformal
curvature line parametrisation and surfaces of revolution, minimal surfaces and
CMC surfaces are examples. Since the latter two surface classes are given by a
harmonic map, one can introduce a spectral parameter and derive new surfaces
from methods of integrable systems, such as the Darboux transform and the simple factor
dressing. CMC surfaces are isothermic surfaces which are constrained Willmore; we will
discuss how the different associated families are linked.
