Pinched hypersurfaces contract to round points

27 Feb 2015  ·  Franzen Martin ·

We investigate the evolution of closed strictly convex hypersurfaces in $\mathbb{R}^{n+1}$, n=3, for contracting normal velocities, including powers of the mean curvature, of the norm of the second fundamental form, and of the Gauss curvature. We prove convergence to a round point for 2-pinched initial hypersurfaces. In $\mathbb{R}^{n+1}$, n=2, natural quantities exist for proving convergence to a round point for many normal velocities. Here we present their counterparts for arbitrary dimensions $n\in\mathbb{N}$.
