### Computing critical point evolution under planar curvature flows

• Physics
• 2020
We present a numerical method for computing the evolution of a planar, star-shaped curve under a broad class of curvature-driven geometric flows, which we refer to as the Andrews-Bloore flows. This

### Whitney-Graustein Homotopy of Locally Convex Curves via a Curvature Flow

Let \$X_0, \widetilde{X}\$ be two smooth, closed and locally convex curves in the plane with same winding number. A curvature flow with a nonlocal term is constructed to evolve \$X_0\$ into

### Gage’s original normalized CSF can also yield the Grayson theorem

• Mathematics
• 2016
Mimicking Andrews-Bryan’s argument, it is proved in this note that Gage’s original normalized curve shortening flow can also yield the Grayson theorem.

### A note on Grayson's theorem

• Mathematics
• 2014
In this note we show a variational proof of Matthew Grayson’s convexification theorem for simple closed curves moving by curvature in the plane. CONTENTS

### Noncollapsing in mean-convex mean curvature flow

We provide a direct proof of a noncollapsing estimate for compact hypersurfaces with positive mean curvature moving under the mean curvature flow: Precisely, if every point on the initial

### Non-collapsing in mean-convex mean curvature flow

We provide a direct proof of a non-collapsing estimate for compact hypersurfaces with positive mean curvature moving under the mean curvature flow: Precisely, if every point on the initial

### The blow up analysis of the general curve shortening flow

• Mathematics
• 2009
It is shown that the curvature function satisfies a nonlinear evolution equation under the general curve shortening flow and a detailed asymptotic behavior of the closed curves is presented when they

### POLYGON SHORTENING MAKES (MOST) QUADRILATERALS CIRCULAR

We show that an analog of the Gage-Grayson-Hamilton Theorem for curves moving according to their mean curvature holds for the motion of quadrilaterals according to their Menger curva- ture.

### Medial Axes and Mean Curvature Motion I: Regular Points

A set of conditions on the local validity of a medial axis transform and a differential equation for the change of smooth parts of the medial axis when its generating curve evolves under MCM are presented.

### BONNESEN-STYLE ISOPERIMETRIC INEQUALITIES

Because of Property 1, any Bonnesen inequality implies the isoperimetric inequality (1). From Property 2, it follows that equality can hold in (1) only when C is a circle. The effect of Property 3 is
