Abstract: I shall consider the geometry of spacetime 2-surfaces which bound spacelike hypersufaces. These surfaces are of great interest in general relativity because of the connection to the notion of gravitational energy. Several recent results from joint work with PoNing Chen and Shing-Tung Yau will be discussed.
