N2 - It is proved that the negatively curved set M_ on a nonparametric surface M of constant mean curvature in ℝ3 must extend to the boundary ∂M, if M_ is nonempty. For M parametric, if M_ is compactly included in the interior of M , then M_ is at least as large as an extremal domain. The results imply certain convexity results on elliptic partial differential equations. Second-order calculus of variation is employed.
