An inequality for the minimum affine curvature of a plane curve

- Mathematics
- 2020

As an application of the affine curve shortening flow, we will prove an inequality for minimum affine curvature of a smooth simple closed curve in the Euclidean plane. Résumé. Comme application du…

Singularity theory and heat equation. Theorie des singularites etequations de diffusion: illustration graphique d'un exemple.

- Mathematics

On a General Linear Nonlocal Curvature Flow of Convex Plane Curves

- Mathematics
- 2010

Motivated by Pan-Yang [PY] and Ma-Cheng [MC], we study a general linear nonlocal curvature flow for convex closed plane curves and discuss the short time existence and asymptotic convergence behavior…

Expanding convex immersed closed plane curves

- Mathematics
- 2009

We study the evolution driven by curvature of a given convex immersed closed plane curve. We show that it will converge to a self-similar solution eventually. This self-similar solution may or may…

Application of Andrews and Green-Osher inequalities to nonlocal flow of convex plane curves

- Mathematics
- 2012

We shall apply certain inequalities by Andrews and Green-Osher to area-preserving and length-preserving flows of convex plane curves and show that, if we have bound on the curvature, the evolving…

Inextensible Flows of Curves in Minkowskian Space

- Mathematics

In this paper we investigate inextensible flow of curves in Minkowski 3-space. Necessary and sufficient conditions for an inextensible curve flow are expressed as a partial differential equation…

Curvature estimates for graphical mean curvature flow in higher codimension

- Mathematics
- 2015

I consider deformations of maps f : M→ N under the mean curvature flow, i. e. the mean curvature flow of the graph Γ( f ) of f in M× N. Let M be a compact and N be a complete Riemann surface, such…

On a Logarithmic Type Nonlocal Plane Curve Flow

Flow by mean curvature of convex surfaces into spheres

- Mathematics
- 1984

The motion of surfaces by their mean curvature has been studied by Brakke [1] from the viewpoint of geometric measure theory. Other authors investigated the corresponding nonparametric problem [2],…

BONNESEN-STYLE ISOPERIMETRIC INEQUALITIES

- Mathematics
- 1979

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…
