Mean Curvature Flow of Two-Convex Hypersurfaces

Speaker: John Head, NYU

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 905

We discuss mean curvature flow of two-convex hypersurfaces in Euclidean space: we explain the relationship between the Huisken-Sinestrari surgery program and the well-known weak solution of the level-set flow, and we show how this theory can be used to prove regularity estimates for mean curvature flow.
