Logarithmically spiraling helicoids
Pages: 461 – 504
We construct helicoid-like embedded minimal disks with axes along self-similar curves modeled on logarithmic spirals using PDE methods. The surfaces have a self-similarity inherited from the curves and the nature of the construction. Moreover, inside of a “logarithmic cone,” the surfaces are embedded.
