Title: Dirichlet boundary values on Euclidean balls with infinitely many 
solutions for the minimal surface system


We make systematic developments on Lawson-Osserman constructions 
relating to the Dirichlet problem (over unit disks) for minimal surfaces 
of high codimension in their 1977' Acta paper. In particular, we show 
the existence of boundary functions for which infinitely many analytic 
solutions and at least one nonsmooth Lipschitz solution exist 
simultaneously. This newly-discovered amusing phenomenon enriches the 
understanding on the Lawson-Osserman philosophy.
