Minimal Immersions into the 3-Sphere and the Sinh-Gordon Equation

  • Sebastian Klein
Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 2229)


We begin by describing the relationship between minimal immersions without umbilical points into the 3-sphere and solutions of the sinh-Gordon equation explicitly, especially to obtain the \(\mathfrak {sl}(2,\mathbb {C})\)-valued connection form αλ corresponding to the zero-curvature representation of the sinh-Gordon equation; from the integration of αλ we will obtain spectral data for periodic solutions of the sinh-Gordon equation.
