Stability analysis of phase boundary motion by surface diffusion with triple junction.
Banach Center Publications 86, pp. 83-101.
The linearized stability of stationary solutions for the surface diffusion flow with
a triple junction is studied. We derive the second variation of the energy functional under the
constraint that the enclosed areas are preserved and show a linearized stability criterion with the
help of the H−1-gradient flow structure of the evolution problem and the analysis of eigenvalues
of a corresponding differential operator.
