Self-similar solutions of Gauss curvature flows

Self-similar solutions of curvature flows are of interest because they arise as asymptotic limits of these flows. I will describe some results on the classification of complete noncompact convex hypersurfaces of Euclidean space moving homothetically under flow by a positive or negative power of the Gauss curvature.

Refreshments will be served at 2:45 p.m. in the Faculty Lounge, Math Annex (Room 1115).
