Differential Geometry & Geometric Analysis Seminar

The Differential Geometry and Geometry Analysis seminar sees talks most often about interactions between elliptic PDE's and differential geometry.  Common topics include (but are not limited to) conformal geometry, minimal surfaces and other variational problems, K\"ahler geometry, CR geometry, elliptic problems from general relativity, nonlinear and/or nonlocal elliptic or parabolic PDE's, and geometric functional inequalities.

Mean convex level set flow in general ambient manifolds

Mean curvature flow is a geometric heat equation for hyper-surfaces, which is the gradient flow of the surface area functional. The flow typically becomes singular at finite time, after which it can be extended by an object called the "level set flow".
