Abstract: Motion by surface diffusion, in which the normal velocity of an evolving surface is proportional to minus the surface Laplacian of its mean curvature, constitutes a geometric motion which plays a critical role in many technological applications, from thin film drug delivery, optical coatings, printing, and spray technology. While surface diffusion has been discussed in the material science literature to 1950s, much concerning its mathematical theory remains to be developed. The aim of the proposed minisymposium is consider surface diffusion and related problems from a variety of aspects, including existence, uniqueness, self-similarity, numerical methods, and issues related to applications. SIAG-MS sponsored.
