Abstract

In this note we present a simple alternative proof for the Bernstein problem in the three-dimensional Heisenberg group $\operatorname{Nil}_3$ by using the loop group technique. We clarify the geometric meaning of the two-parameter ambiguity of entire minimal graphs with prescribed Abresch-Rosenberg differential.
