Motion by Curvature of Planar Networks

Abstract

We consider the motion by curvature of a network of smooth curves with multiple junctions in the plane, that is, the geometric gradient flow associated to the length functional. Such a flow represents the evolution of a two–dimensional multiphase system where the energy is simply the sum of the lengths of the interfaces, in particular it is a possible model… (More)
