Barrett, John W. and Garcke, Harald and Nürnberg, Robert (2011) The approximation of planar curve evolutions by stable fully implicit finite element schemes that equidistribute. Numer. Methods Partial Differential Equations 27 (1), pp. 1-30.
Based on earlier work by the authors, in this paper we introduce novel fully discrete, fully practical parametric finite element approximations for geometric evolution equations of curves in the plane. The fully implicit approximations are unconditionally stable and intrinsically equidistribute the vertices at each time level. We present iterative solution methods for the systems of nonlinear ...
