Event description:

We study the number of solutions of asymptotic Plateau problem in

hyperbolic 3-space. By combining some analytical results and some

topological arguments, we show that there exists an open dense subset of

some smooth class of Jordan curves in the sphere at infinity such that any

curve in this set bounds a unique least area plane in the hyperbolic

space.
