# Convergence of nonlocal geometric flows to anisotropic mean curvature motion

@article{Cesaroni2018ConvergenceON, title={Convergence of nonlocal geometric flows to anisotropic mean curvature motion}, author={Annalisa Cesaroni and Valerio Pagliari}, journal={arXiv: Analysis of PDEs}, year={2018} }

We consider nonlocal curvature functionals associated with positive interaction kernels, and we show that local anisotropic mean curvature functionals can be retrieved in a blow-up limit from them. As a consequence, we prove that the viscosity solutions to the rescaled nonlocal geometric flows locally uniformly converge to the viscosity solution to the anisotropic mean curvature motion. The result is achieved by combining a compactness argument and a set-theoretic approach related to the theory… Expand
