Differential and Integral Equations

Fine structure of the interface motion

Paolo Buttà and Anna De Masi

Full-text: Open access


We study a non local evolution and define the interface in terms of a local equilibrium condition. We prove that in a diffusive scaling limit the local equilibrium condition propagates in time thus defining an interface evolution which is given by a motion by mean curvature. The analysis extend through all times before the appearance of singularities.
