The extension problem of the mean curvature flow
We show that the mean curvature blows up at the first finite singular time for a closed smooth embedded mean curvature flow in R^3.
A key ingredient of the proof is to show a two-sided pseudo-locality property of the mean curvature flow, whenever the mean curvature is bounded.
This is a joint work with Haozhao Li.
Ben Weinkove
Every compact complex manifold admits a Gauduchon metric in each conformal class of Hermitian metrics. In 1984 Gauduchon conjectured that one can prescribe the volume form of such a metric. I will discuss the proof of this conjecture, which amounts to solving a nonlinear Monge-Ampere type equation. This is a joint work with Gabor Szekelyhidi and Valentino Tosatti.
