Abstract : In this talk, we introduce geometric variational problems related to mean curvature. We cover the notion of geodesics, minimal hypersurfaces and their constant mean curvature analog as a critical point of area functional and its generalization. Moreover, if time permits, we will discuss the Morse theory of geodesics and minimal hypersurfaces, and recent progress on this variational theory on its spatial distibutions.
