Research description

Parks has developed and implemented a computational technique for computing parametric area minimizing surfaces. He derived an existence and regularity theory for a class of constrained variational problems. Parks has discovered, and characterized, a type of minimal surface with surprising properties, defined in terms of the Jacobi elliptic functions.
