Mean Curvature Flow with a Forcing Term in Minkowski Space

Mark Andrew Aarons

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


We study the forced mean curvature flow of graphs in Minkowski space and prove longtime existence of solutions. When the forcing term is a constant, we prove convergence to either a constant mean curvature hypersurface or a translating soliton – depending on the boundary conditions at infinity.
