Huisken's Mean curvature flow papers on Type-1 Mean Curvature Flow.


In 1990, Huisken published a paper titled "Asymptotic behavior for singularities of the mean curvature flow", in which he introduced the monotonicity formula and used it to show that compact limiting surfaces of Type-I flow are spheres. This is an improvement of his previous paper in 1984, titled "Flow by mean curvature of convex surfaces in to spheres", in which he proved that all compact uniformly convex surfaces are of Type-I. In the talk, I plan to talk about some of the estimates he used to obtain these results, with a focus on his earlier paper in 1984.
