Ph.D. Princeton, 1974.

A.B. Dartmouth, 1971.

Research Field:

Geometric Measure Theory, Minimal Hypersurfaces, and Applications to Variational Problems

Research Description:

Parks has developed and implemented a computational technique for computing parametric area minimizing surfaces. He derived an existence and regularity theory for a class of constrained variational problems. Parks has discovered, and characterized, a type of minimal surface with surprising properties, defined in terms of the Jacobi elliptic functions.
