On The 1+2 Dimensional Landau-Lifshitz EquationApr 14 2005By using the geometric concept of PDEs with prescribed curvature representations, we show that the 1+2 dimensional Landau-Lifshitz equation is gauge equivalent to a 1+2 dimensional nonlinear Schr\"odinger-type system. From the nonlinear Schr\"odinger-type ... More

A Bernstein type theorem for minimal hypersurfaces via Gauss mapsMar 19 2018Let $M$ be an $n$-dimensional smooth oriented complete minimal hypersurface in $\mathbb{R}^{n+1}$ with Euclidean volume growth. We show that if the image under the Gauss map of $M$ avoids some neighborhood of a half-equator, then $M$ must be an affine ... More

Entire spacelike translating solitons in Minkowski spaceApr 09 2012In this paper, we study entire spacelike translating solitons in Minkowski space. By constructing convex spacelike solutions to (1.3) in bounded convex domains, we obtain many entire smooth convex strictly spacelike translating solitons by prescribing ... More
