Abstract

In this paper, we prove that if a quasi-Fuchsian 3-manifold contains a minimal surface whose principal curvatures are in (–1,1), then it admits a foliation such that each leaf is a surface of constant mean curvature. The key method that we use here is volume preserving mean curvature flow.
