Higher dimensional Scherk's hypersurfaces

Abstract : In 3-dimensional Euclidean space, Scherk second surfaces are singly periodic embedded minimal surfaces with four planar ends. In this paper, we obtain a natural generalization of these minimal surfaces in any higher dimensional Euclidean space ${\R}^{n+1}$, for $n \geq 3$. More precisely, we show that there exist $(n-1)$-periodic embedded minimal hypersurfaces with four hyperplanar ends. The moduli space of these hypersurfaces forms a 1-dimensional fibration over the moduli space of flat tori in ${\R}^{n-1}$. A partial description of the boundary of this moduli space is also given.
