Abstract

We consider surfaces with boundary satisfying a sixth-order nonlinear elliptic partial differential equation corresponding to extremising the L2-norm of the gradient of the mean curvature. We show that such surfaces with small L2-norm of the second fundamental form and satisfying so-called flat boundary conditions are necessarily planar.
