Niklas Affolter - S-embeddings and discrete maximal Lorentz surfaces - IPAM at UCLA

March 29, 2024
Recorded 29 March 2024. Niklas Affolter of Technische Universität Berlin presents "S-embeddings and discrete maximal Lorentz surfaces" at IPAM's Statistical Mechanics and Discrete Geometry Workshop. Abstract: We build upon the work of Chelkak, Laslier and Russkikh to present a class of s-embeddings that corresponds to discrete isothermic surfaces in Lorentz space. As a special case, we identify discrete maximal surfaces, which are discrete surfaces with vanishing discrete mean curvature. We also introduce an associated family of discrete maximal surfaces and the corresponding family of s-embeddings. Joint work with Dellinger, Müller, Polly, Smeenk and Techter. Learn more online at:
