Global existence and full convergence of the M\"obius-invariant Willmore flow in the 3-sphere, Part I
In this article the author continues his investigation of the M\"obius-invariant Willmore flow, for which the author has already proved existence and uniqueness of smooth short-time solutions,
Total squared mean curvature of immersed submanifolds in a negatively curved space
Problems on the Willmore energy, i.e. the integral of the square of the mean curvature of submanifolds, in the Euclidean space and other space forms have a long history, around which many important
The Willmore flow of Hopf-tori in the $3$-sphere
In this article the author investigates flow lines of the classical Willmore flow evolution equation (1) which start moving in a parametrization of a Hopf-torus in S. We prove that any such flow line
Explicit formulas and symmetry breaking for Willmore surfaces of revolution
In this paper we prove explicit formulas for all Willmore surfaces of revolution and demonstrate their use in the discussion of the associated Dirichlet boundary value problems. It is shown by an

Closed-forms of planar Kirchhoff elastic rods: application to inverse geometry
In this paper, we address the problem of inverse geometry for Kirchhoff elastic rods. Based on the explicit formulation of extremal curves in terms of elliptic functions, we derive closed forms for
Numerical approximation of gradient flows for closed curves in Rd
We present parametric finite element approximations of curvature flows for curves in Rd, d ≥ 2, as well as for curves on two-dimensional manifolds in R3. Here we consider the curve shortening flow,
The Constrained Blaschke Functional for Spherical Curves
We study critical trajectories in the sphere for the Blaschke variational problem with length constraint. For every Lagrange multiplier encoding the conservation of the length during the varia-tion,
Numerical approximation of boundary value problems for curvature flow and elastic flow in Riemannian manifolds
TLDR
Variational approximations of boundary value problems for curvature flow and elastic flow in two-dimensional Riemannian manifolds that are conformally flat are presented and natural boundary conditions that respect the appropriate gradient flow structure are proposed.
