Welcome to the new mode of our PDEGA seminar this semester. Each week, we'll introduce to you two talks that are interesting and related to our interests. As the videos are already on Youtube or other platforms, you could choose to watch them whenever you want to; our goal here is merely to pick our favorite ones out of thousands of already available recorded talks.

The Huisken-Hamilton-Gage theorem on compact convex solutions to MCF shows that in forward time all solutions do the same thing, namely, they shrink to a point and become round as they do soEven though MCF is ill-posed in backward time there do exist solutions that are defined for all t<0 , and one can try to classify all such &ldquo;Ancient Solutions.&rdquo;  In doing so one finds that there is interesting dynamics associated to ancient solutions.  I will discuss what is currently known about these solutions.  Some of the talk is based on joint work with Sesum and Daskalopoulos.

We consider the patch evolution under the 2D Euler dynamics and study how the geometry of the boundary can deteriorate in time.

== Abstracts ==
We show that the mean curvature blows up at the first finite singular time for a closed smooth embedded mean curvature flow in R3. This is a joint work with H.Z. Li.
 
 
 
===Eric Baer===
 
We discuss a recent result showing that a characterization of isoperimetric sets (that is, sets minimizing a relative perimeter functional with respect to a fixed volume constraint) inside convex cones as sections of balls centered at the origin (originally due to P.L. Lions and F. Pacella) remains valid for a class of "almost-convex" cones.  Key tools include compactness arguments and the use of classically known sharp characterizations of lower bounds for the first nonzero Neumann eigenvalue associated to (geodesically) convex domains in the hemisphere.  The work we describe is joint with A. Figalli.
 
 
 
===Ben Seeger===
 
I present a homogenization result for pathwise Hamilton-Jacobi equations with "rough" multiplicative driving signals. In doing so, I derive a new well-posedness result when the Hamiltonian is smooth, convex, and positively homogenous. I also demonstrate that equations involving multiple driving signals may homogenize or exhibit blow-up.

Mean-Field Limits for Ginzburg-Landau vortices
 
  
Ginzburg-Landau type equations are models for superconductivity, superfluidity, Bose-Einstein condensation. A crucial feature is the presence of quantized vortices, which are topological zeroes of the complex-valued solutions. This talk will review some results on the derivation of effective models to describe the statics and dynamics of these vortices, with particular attention to the situation where the number of vortices blows up with the parameters of the problem. In particular we will present new results on the derivation of mean field limits for the dynamics of many vortices starting from the parabolic Ginzburg-Landau equation or the Gross-Pitaevskii (=Schrodinger Ginzburg-Landau) equation.

Abstract:
We consider a model for three-dimensional fluid flow on the torus that also keeps track of the local temperature. The momentum equation is the same as for Navier-Stokes, however the kinematic viscosity grows as a function of the local temperature. The temperature is, in turn, fed by the local dissipation of kinetic energy. Intuitively, this leads to a mechanism whereby turbulent regions increase their local viscosity and
 
dissipate faster. We prove a strong a priori bound (that would fall within the Ladyzhenskaya-Prodi-Serrin criterion for ordinary Navier-Stokes) on the thermally weighted enstrophy for classical solutions to the coupled system.
