Periodic traveling waves of a mean curvature flow in heterogeneous media

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We consider a curvature flow in heterogeneous media in the plane: $ V= a(x,y) \kappa + b$, where for a plane curve, $V$ denotes its normal velocity, $\kappa$ denotes its curvature, $b$ is a constant and $a(x,y)$ is a positive function, periodic in $y$. We study periodic traveling waves which travel in $y$-direction with given average speed $c \geq 0$. Four different types of traveling waves are given, whose profiles are straight lines, ''V"-like curves, cup-like curves and cap-like curves, respectively. We also show that, as $(b,c)\rightarrow (0,0)$, the profiles of the traveling waves converge to straight lines. These results are connected with spatially heterogeneous version of Bernshteĭn's Problem and De Giorgi's Conjecture, which are proposed at last.
