Summary: We study anisotropic surface diffusion flow of hypersurfaces in \(\mathbb R^n\). We present a finite volume numerical scheme for the graph and the level-set formulation. The graph formulation is applied on surfaces in \(\mathbb R^3\) and with the level-set formulation we evolve curves in \(\mathbb R^2\). The discretisation in time is done by mean of the method of lines which gives us a system of ordinary differential equations. To solve this system we apply the Merson modification of the fourth order Runge-Kutta method. We show several qualitative results for both, the graph and the level-set formulation.
