Singular behavior of min-max minimal hypersurfaces in dimension 8
Luca Spolaor, Department of Mathematics, UC San Diego,

In this talk I will discuss an estimate on the index and number of "non-minimizing" singular points for one parameter min-max minimal hypersurfaces in 8-dimensional compact manifolds. As a consequence I will discuss the generic existence of smooth embedded minimal hypersurfaces in 8-dimensional compact manifolds.
This joint work with Otis Chodosh (Stanford) and Yevgeny Liokumovich (University of Toronto).
