#### Some aspects of Minimal surfaces, maximal surfaces and solitions.

*I will introduce minimal surfaces and explain the*

Weierstrass-Enneper representation of a minimal surface using hodographic

coordinates. I will mention an interesting link between minimal surfaces

and Born-Infeld solitons. I will talk about some identities we obtain from

certain simple Ramanujan's identities. If time permits, I will introduce

maximal surfaces in Lorentzian space and talk about analogous results

corresponding to these surfaces.
