The isoperimetric ratio of an embedded surface in R3 is defined as the ratio of the area of the surface to power three to the squared enclosed volume. The aim of the present work is to study the minimization of the Willmore energy under fixed isoperimetric ratio when the underlying abstract surface has fixed genus g≧0. The corresponding problem in the case of spherical surfaces, that is g = 0, was recently solved by Schygulla (see Schygulla, Arch Ration Mech Anal 203:901–941, 2012) with different methods. Show more
