### In the press

From the reviews of the second edition:

“This volume is in many ways an introduction to differential geometry and to the classical theory of minimal surfaces, and the first four chapters should be readable for graduate students since the only prerequisites are the elements of vector analysis and some basic knowledge of complex analysis. … In general, the material of this volume is self-contained … . For further study the authors refer to the extensive bibliography as well as to comments and references in the Scholia attached to each chapter.” (Andrew Bucki, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012 b)

“The most complete and thorough record of the ongoing efforts to justify Lagrange’s optimism. … contain a wealth of new material in the form of newly written chapters and sections … . a compilation of results and proofs from a vast subject. Here were true scholars in the best sense of the word at work, creating their literary lifetime achievements. They wrote with love for detail, clarity and history, which makes them a pleasure to read. … will become instantaneous classics.” (Matthias Weber, The Mathematical Association of America, June, 2011)
