In this paper, we consider affine self-similar solutions for the affine curve shortening flow in the Euclidean plane. We obtain the equations of all affine self-similar solutions up to affineExpand
Curve-Shortening Flow
Curve-shortening flow (CSF) is a geometric heat flow with a variety of applications in mathematics and physics that acts on each point of an immersed curve inwards at a speed proportional to itsExpand
The fundamental solutions of the curve shortening problem via the Schwarz function
Curve shortening in the z-plane in which, at a given point on the curve, the normal velocity of the curve is equal to the curvature, is shown to satisfy StSz = Szz , where S(z, t) is the SchwarzExpand
The area preserving curve shortening flow with Neumann free boundary conditions
Abstract We study the area preserving curve shortening flow with Neumann free boundary conditions outside of a convex domain in the Euclidean plane. Under certain conditions on the initial curve theExpand
