Évolution d’une interface par capillarité et diffusion de volume. I: Existence locale en temps. (French) Zbl 0572.35051

We prove the existence locally in time for the following problem: a curve moves with velocity equal to the normal derivative of a harmonic function, whose boundary value is given by the curvature of the curve (here in the case of an initial curve graph of a smooth function).
