*Construction of immersed self-shrinkers*

Abstract: We describe a procedure for constructing immersed self-shrinking solutions to mean curvature flow. The self-shrinkers we construct have a rotational symmetry, and the construction involves a detailed study of geodesics in the upper-half plane with a conformal metric. This is a joint work with Stephen Kleene.
