We establish long-time existence of Banach gradient flows for generalised integral Menger curvatures and tangent-point energies, and for O’Hara’s self-repulsive potentials E α,p . In order to do so, we employ the theory of curves of maximal slope in slightly smaller spaces compactly embedding into the respective energy spaces associated to these functionals, and add a term involving the logarithmic strain, which controls the parametrisations of the flowing (knotted) loops. As a prerequisite, we…

A regularized gradient flow for the p-elastic energy

Abstract We prove long-time existence for the negative L 2 {L}^{2} -gradient flow of the p-elastic energy, p ≥ 2 p\ge 2 , with an additive positive multiple of the length of the curve. To achieve

Sobolev Gradients for the Möbius Energy

A gradient-based approach to approximate stationary points of the Möbius energy leads to optimization methods that are significantly more efficient and robust than standard techniques based on L2.

Variational formulae and estimates of O’Hara’s knot energies

O’Hara’s energies, introduced by Jun O’Hara, were proposed to answer the question what the canonical shape in a given knot type is, and were configured so that the less the energy value of a knot is,

It has been shown previously that the L p (μ) spaces for 1 < p ≤ 2 satisfy a weak parallelogram law, and the same methods can be used to show that the L p (μ) spaces for 2 ≤ p <∞ satisfy a related

All curves in a C 1 -neighbourhood of a given embedded curve are isotopic

We give a detailed construction of an ambient isotopy to prove that for any embedded closed curve 2 C 1 (S 1 ,R 3 ) there is an " > 0, such that all 2 C 1 (S 1 ,R 3 ) with k ˙ ˙ kC0 " are ambient
