The study of embedded minimal surfaces in ℝ3 is a classical problem, dating to the mid 1700s, and many people have made key contributions. We will survey a few recent advances, focusing on joint work with Tobias H. Colding of MIT and Courant Institute, and taking the opportunity to focus on results that have not been highlighted elsewhere.
