Geometry and Topology Seminar: Flowing to linear Hopf spheres
18 May 2017 13:00 in CM221
In this talk we describe work in collaboration with WK exploring Weingarten relations for surfaces in euclidean 3-space using parabolic methods. Even in the case of a linear Weingarten relation such flows exhibit a variety of behaviours. We will discuss closed solutions as well as qualitative aspects of the flow.
