Stability analysis for the surface diffusion flow on double bubbles using the Lojasiewicz-Simon (English)
[ Abstract ]
Many strategies for stability analysis use precise knowledge of the set of equilibria. For example, Escher, Mayer, and Simonett used center manifold analysis to study the surface diffusion flow on closed manifolds. Especially in higher dimensional situations with boundaries, this can cause problems as the set of equilibria will have a lot of degrees of freedom. In such situations approaches with a Lojasiewicz-Simon inequality gives an elegant way to avoid this problem. In this talk, we will both explain the general tools and ideas for this strategy and use them to prove the stability of standard double bubbles with respect to the surface diffusion flow. The talk is based on joint work with H. Garcke.
