Let Mⁿ be a hypersurface in ${R}^{n+1}$. We prove that two classical Jacobi curvature operators ${J}_{x}$ and ${J}_{y}$ commute on Mⁿ, n > 2, for all orthonormal pairs (x,y) and for all points p ∈ M if and only if Mⁿ is a space of constant sectional curvature. Also we consider all hypersurfaces with n ≥ 4 satisfying the commutation relation $\left({K}_{x,y}\circ {K}_{z,u}\right)\left(u\right)=\left({K}_{z,u}\circ {K}_{x,y}\right)\left(u\right)$, where ${K}_{x,y}\left(u\right)=R(x,y,u)$, for all orthonormal tangent vectors x,y,z,w and for all points p ∈ M.

A classical result of A. D. Alexandrov states that a connected compact smooth $n$-dimensional manifold without boundary, embedded in ${\mathbb{R}}^{n+1}$, and such that its mean curvature is constant, is a sphere. Here we study the problem of symmetry of $M$ in a hyperplane ${X}_{n+1}=\text{const}$ in case $M$ satisfies: for any two points $({X}^{\text{'}},{X}_{n+1})$, $({X}^{\text{'}},{\widehat{X}}_{n+1})$ on $M$, with ${X}_{n+1}>{\widehat{X}}_{n+1}$, the mean curvature at the first is not greater than that at the second. Symmetry need not always hold, but in this paper, we establish it under some additional condition for $n=1$. Some variations...

In this article, we prove new stability results for almost-Einstein hypersurfaces of the Euclidean space, based on previous eigenvalue pinching results. Then, we deduce some comparable results for almost umbilical hypersurfaces.

We consider the integral functional $J\left(u\right)={\int}_{\Omega}\left[f\right(\left|Du\right|\left)-u\right]dx$, $u\in {W}_{0}^{1,1}\left(\Omega \right)$, where $\Omega \subset {\mathbb{R}}^{n}$, $n\ge 2$, is a nonempty bounded connected open subset of ${\mathbb{R}}^{n}$ with smooth boundary, and $\mathbb{R}\ni s\mapsto f\left(\right|s\left|\right)$ is a convex, differentiable function. We prove that if $J$ admits a minimizer in ${W}_{0}^{1,1}\left(\Omega \right)$ depending only on the distance from the boundary of $\Omega $, then $\Omega $ must be a ball.
