Abstract: A notion of deformation is defined and studied for complete minimal surfaces in $ {R^3}$ and $ {R^3}/G,G$ a group of translations. The catenoid, Enneper's surface, and the surface of Meeks-Jorge, modelled on a $ 3$-punctured sphere, are shown to be isolated. Minimal surfaces of total curvature $ 4\pi $ in $ {R^3}/Z$ and $ {R^3}/{Z^2}$ are studied. It is proved that the helicoid and Scherk's surface are isolated under periodic perturbations.
