The free-boundary Brakke flow

Wednesday, October 26, 2016 -
3:00pm to 4:00pm
A surface has geometric free-boundary if it meets some barrier hypersurface orthogonally, like a bubble on a bathtub.  We extend Brakke's weak notion of mean curvature flow to have a free-boundary condition, which allows the surface to ``pop'' upon tangential contact with the barrier.
