Flow by mean curvature of slowly rotating liquid drops toward stable energy minimisers

Wilkin-Smith, Nigel


We establish sufficient conditions for uniqueness in the context of an energy minimisation property derived earlier by the author for rotating liquid drops of arbitrary dimension. In particular, we obtain unique, global solutions of an associated geometric evolution equation whenever appropriate restrictions are placed on an initial condition corresponding to a fixed angular velocity. These solutions are demonstrated to converge smoothly to a known stable minimal equilibrium, and we prove that...[Show more]
