A note on a unicity theorem for the Gauss maps of complete minimal surfaces in Euclidean four-space
The classical result of Nevanlinna states that two nonconstant meromorphic functions on the complex plane having the same images for five distinct values must be identically equal to each other. In this paper, we give a similar uniqueness theorem for the Gauss maps of complete minimal surfaces in Euclidean four-space.

On the Bernstein Problem in the Three-dimensional Heisenberg Group
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.

Helicoidal Minimal Surfaces in a Finsler Space of Randers Type
We consider the Finsler space $(\bar{M}^3, \bar{F})$ obtained by perturbing the Euclidean metric of $\mathbb{R}^3$ by a rotation. It is the open region of $\mathbb{R}^3$ bounded by a cylinder with a Randers metric. Using the Busemann-Hausdorff volume form, we obtain the differential equation that characterizes the helicoidal minimal surfaces in $\bar{M}^3$. We prove that the helicoid is a minimal surface in $\bar{M}^3$, only if the axis of the helicoid is the axis of the cylinder. Moreover, we prove that, in the Randers space $(\bar{M}^3, \bar{F})$, the only minimal surfaces in the Bonnet family, with fixed axis $O\bar{x}^3$, are the catenoids and the helicoids.
