We provide a detailed description of solutions of Curve Shortening in Rn that are invariant under some one-parameter symmetry group of the equation, paying particular attention to geometric properties of the curves, and the asymptotic properties of their ends. We find generalized helices, and a connection with curve shortening on the unit sphere Sn−1. Expanding rotating solitons turn out to be asymptotic to generalized logarithmic spirals. In terms of asymptotic properties of their ends the… Expand

A free-boundary model of a motile cell explains turning behavior
The model analysis shows that the contractile mechanism of motility supports robust cell turning in conditions where short viscosity-adhesion lengths and fast protrusion cause an accumulation of myosin in a small region at the cell rear, destabilizing the axial symmetry of a moving cell. Expand
