Variational discretization of axisymmetric curvature flows

Numerical computations show that natural axisymmetric variants of schemes for curvature flows introduced earlier by the present authors are very efficient in computing numerical solutions of geometric flows as only a spatially one-dimensional problem has to be solved.

The proposed SP-PFEM is “weakly” implicit and the nonlinear system at each time step can be solved very efficiently and accurately by the Newton’s iterative method.
