# Fernando Coda Marques : Min-max theory and the Willmore conjecture

In 1965, T. J. Willmore conjectured that the integral of the square of the mean curvature of any torus immersed in Euclidean three-space is at least 2\pi^2. In this talk we will describe a solution to the Willmore conjecture based on the min-max theory of minimal surfaces. This is joint work with Andre Neves (Imperial College, UK).
