## [Video] Multiphase mean curvature flow: From numerical schemes to analysis

Dr. Tim Laux talk

**Date:** 09.05.19 **Time:** 14.00 - 15.00 **Room:** Y27H12

Abstract: Multiphase mean curvature flow has, due to its importance in materials science, received a lot of attention over the last decades. In this talk, I will show how the gradient-flow structure allows to prove convergence results for several numerically relevant schemes, including phase-field models and thresholding schemes in codimensions one and two. The methods combine basic geometric measure theory, the theory of gradient flows in metric spaces, and multiscale analysis.
