Abstract (English)

We consider the evolution of open curves driven by curve diffusion flow. This geometric evolution equation arises in problems of phase separation in material science and is the one-dimensional analogue of the surface diffusion flow. The evolving family of curves has free boundary points, which are supported on a line and it has a fixed contact angle $\alpha \in (0, \pi)$ with that line. Moreover, ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Wir betrachten offene Kurven, die durch den Kurvendiffusionsfluss evolviert werden. Diese geometrische Evolutionsgleichung tritt bei Phasenseparationsphänomenen in den Materialwissenschaften auf und ist das eindimensionale Analogon des Oberflächendiffusionsflusses. Die Familie evolvierender Kurven hat Randpunkte, die sich frei auf einer Linie bewegen und die Kurven bilden einen festen Winkel ...
