Mean Curvature Flows and Isotopy Problems


Mean curvature flow (MCF) is the heat equation for

submanifolds. During this process, a submanifold evolves so as to decrease its area as fast as possible. The stationary points of mean curvature flow correspond to minimal submanifolds. In this talk, I will explain how to use mean curvature flow to deform a map between manifolds and how MCF can be used to study several geometric problems related to maps between manifolds.
