Constant mean curvature surfaces with circular boundary in R³

In this work we deal with surfaces immersed in R³ with constant mean curvature and circular boundary. We improve some global estimates for area and volume of such immersions obtained by other authors. We still establish the uniqueness of the spherical cap in some classes of cmc surfaces.
