Numerical approximation of axisymmetric geometric evolution equations Nürnberg, Robert


We present variational formulations of mean curvature flow and surface diffusion for axisymmetric hypersurfaces in R^3. On recalling important properties of the schemes introduced by the authors for the corresponding geometric evolution equations for closed curves in the plane, we introduce suitable finite element approximations, and investigate their stability and vertex distribution properties.
