Abstract

The notion of strictly outward minimising hull is investigated for open sets of finite perimeter sitting inside a complete noncompact Riemannian manifold. Under natural geometric assumptions on the ambient manifold, the strictly outward minimising hull Ω⁎ of a set Ω is characterised as a maximal volume solution of the least area problem with obstacle, where the obstacle is the set itself. In the case where Ω has C1,α-boundary, the area of ∂Ω⁎ is recovered as the limit of the p-capacities of Ω, as p→1+. Finally, building on the existence of strictly outward minimising exhaustions, a sharp isoperimetric inequality is deduced on complete noncompact manifolds with nonnegative Ricci curvature, provided 3≤n≤7.
