Professor Luca Capogna , Smith College Title : CURVE SHRINKING FLOW IN CARNOT GROUPS

Abstract: This is a preliminary report on a joint project with Enrico Le Donne (University of Fribourg, Switzerland). Motivated by the study of geodesics in sub - Riemannian geometry, we use techniques from Lie group geometry and Calculus of Variations to derive a system of PDE that describes the gradient flow of the length functional for horizontal (i.e. tangent to the first layer of the Lie algebra stratification) curves in a rank - two Carnot group of arbitrary step. Similar ly to the Euclidean area - preserving curve shrinking flow, our PDE has a nonlocal term, which arises in view of the non - holonomic constraint, i.e. for each time the curve must be horizontal. We prove short time existence for the flow, if the initial data i s a non - abnormal horizontal curve, and provide some indications of what happens in the abnormal case.
