The forced mean curvature flow in random media

Analysis Seminar
Topic:The forced mean curvature flow in random media
Speaker:William Feldman
Affiliation:Member, School of Mathematics
Date:Monday, November 4
Time/Room:5:15pm - 6:00pm/Simonyi Hall 101

"I will discuss some history and new results about the forced mean curvature flow in inhomogeneous media.  It is a model for interface propagation in quenched randomness in various physical settings, e.g. contact lines, phase interfaces in porous media, domain boundaries in magnetic materials."
