Hypergeometric functions as generalized Stieltjes transforms
Using techniques from geometric measure theory, Federer and Fleming [FeF] were able to solve this problem by proving the existence of an absolutely area minimizing integral current (see also [DG, Giu] for the existence of a minimizing Caccioppoli set).
Area minimizing surfaces in mean convex 3-manifolds
Then, since the areas |Σi | are uniformly bounded, by the Federer-Fleming compactness theorem for integral currents [FeF], after passing to a subsequence Si → S0 , in the sense of currents, where S0 is an integral current, with M (S0 ) ≤ limi→∞ M (Si ) = |Σ|; here M denotes the mass of the current (see [Sim]).
