# Nonconvex Surfaces which Flow to Round Points

@article{Mramor2019NonconvexSW, title={Nonconvex Surfaces which Flow to Round Points}, author={Alexander Mramor and Alec Payne}, journal={arXiv: Differential Geometry}, year={2019} }

In this article we extend Huisken's theorem that convex surfaces flow to round points by mean curvature flow. We will construct certain classes of mean convex and non-mean convex hypersurfaces that shrink to round points and use these constructions to create pathological examples of flows. We find a sequence of flows that exist on a uniform time interval, have uniformly bounded diameter, and shrink to round points, yet the sequence of initial surfaces has no subsequence converging in the Gromov…
