Abstract

In this talk I present our recent works, jointly with D.Knopf and I.M.Sigal, on singularity formation under mean curvature flow. By techniques from mathematical physics, we proved the uniqueness of collapsing cylinder for a generic class of initial surfaces. In the talk some key new elements will be discussed. A few problems, which might be tackled by our techniques, will be formulated.
