Construction of higher genus embedded minimal surfaces. (English) Zbl 0737.53007
Geometry and topology III, Proc. Workshop, Leeds/UK 1990, 174-191 (1991).
[For the entire collection see Zbl 0724.00015.]
The author analyses the known examples of embedded minimal surfaces in 3- space, and obtaines a number of natural questions about them. He then discusses the adding of handles to complete minimal surfaces, in particular to triply periodic ones.
