Abstracts

Sigurd Angenent

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 so. Even 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 “Ancient solutions.” 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.
