Summary: This report summarizes work done as part of the Geometric Calculus of Variations PFUG under Rice University’s VIGRE program in Summer 2011. VIGRE is a program of Vertically Integrated Grants for Research and Education in the Mathematical Sciences under the direction of the National Science Foundation. A PFUG is a group of Postdocs, Faculty, Undergraduates and Graduate students formed round the study of a common problem. The purpose of the PFUG was to study extremal length and metric minimization on several domains.
