Brief description Higher order curvature flow of curves and hypersurfaces. This project aims to analyse higher order geometric partial differential equations that have important mathematical applications in differential geometry of submanifolds as well as practical applications in physics and mathematical biology. The project aims to prove new general principles that reveal properties of these higher order elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations, producing a unified framework with applications to various specific problems. This project aims to increase Australia's research capacity in geometric evolution problems, provide training for some of Australia's next generation of mathematicians and build Australia's international reputation for significant research in geometric analysis.
