The existence of embedded minimal hypersurfaces

Abstract

We give a shorter proof of the existence of nontrivial closed minimal hypersurfaces in closed smooth $(n + 1)$-dimensional Riemannian manifolds, a theorem proved first by Pitts for $2 \leq n \leq 5$ and extended later by Schoen and Simon to any $n$.
