We introduce a length scale in Plateau’s problem by modeling soap films as liquid with small volume rather than as surfaces, and study the relaxed problem and its relation to minimal surfaces. This is based on joint works with Antonello Scardicchio (at ICTP Trieste), Darren King and Salvatore Stuvard (at UT Austin).
