Abstract

We consider area minimizing m-dimensional currents mod(p) in complete C^2 Riemannian manifolds $Sigma$ of dimension m+1. For odd moduli we prove that, away from a closed rectifiable set of codimension 2, the current in question is, locally, the union of finitely many smooth minimal hypersurfaces coming together at a common $C^{1,alpha}$ boundary of dimension m-1, and the result is optimal. For even p such structure holds in a neighborhood of any point where at least one tangent cone has (m-1)-dimensional spine. These structural results are indeed the byproduct of a theorem that proves (for any modulus) uniqueness and decay towards such tangent cones. The underlying strategy of the proof is inspired by the techniques developed by Simon in "Cylindrical tangent cones and the singular set of minimal submanifolds" (J. Differential Geometry 1993) in a class of multiplicity one stationary varifolds. The major difficulty in our setting is produced by the fact that the cones and surfaces under investigation have arbitrary multiplicities ranging from 1 to [p/2].
