Shortening space curves and flow through singularities

Abstract

When a closed curve immersed in the plane evolves by its curvature vector, singularities can form before the curve shrinks to a point. We show how to use the curvature flow on space curves to define a natural continuation of the planar solution for all time. © 1992, International Press of Boston, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
