Solutions of the so-called prescribed curvature problem minA⊆Ω PΩ(A)− ∫ A g(x), g being the curvature field, are approximated via a singularly perturbed elliptic PDE of bistable type. For nondegenerate relative minimizers A ⊂⊂ Ω we prove an O( 2| log |2) error estimate (where stands for the perturbation parameter), and show that this estimate is(More)
In this paper we present a few numerical simulations of a nonsymmetric anisotropic evolution by mean curvature which leads to the so-called fattening of the interface. The numerical simulations are based on a diffused interface approximation via a bistable reaction-diffusion equation which is then discretized by means of finite elements in space and forward(More)
In this paper we study the nonconvex anisotropic mean curvature flow of a hypersurface. This corresponds to an anisotropic mean curvature flow where the anisotropy has a nonconvex Frank diagram. The geometric evolution law is therefore forward-backward parabolic in character, hence ill-posed in general. We study a particular regularization of this geometric(More)
We introduce and study a two-dimensional variational model for the reconstruction of a smooth generic solid shape E, which may handle the self-occlusions and that can be considered as an improvement of the 2.1D sketch of Nitzberg and Mumford (Proceedings of the Third International Conference on Computer Vision, Osaka, 1990). We characterize from the(More)
We study the asymptotic analysis of a singularly perturbed weakly parabolic system of mequations of anisotropic reaction-diffusion type. Our main result formally shows that solutions to the system approximate a geometric motion of a hypersurface by anisotropic mean curvature. The anisotropy, supposed to be uniformly convex, is explicit and turns out to be(More)
In this paper we estimate the area of the graph of a map u : Ω ⊂ R → R discontinuous on a segment Ju, with Ju either compactly contained in the bounded open set Ω, or starting and ending on ∂Ω. We characterize A(u,Ω), the relaxed area functional in a sort of uniform convergence, in terms of the infimum of the area of those surfaces in R spanning the graphs(More)
