An area-minimizing scheme for anisotropic mean-curvature flow. (English) Zbl 1275.35014

The authors prove the convergence of an area-minimizing scheme for anisotropic mean curvature flow that originally due to A. Chambolle [Interfaces Free Bound. 6, No. 2, 195–218 (2004; Zbl 1061.35147)] in the sense of Hausdorff distance by the level set method provided that no flattening occurs. This an area-minimizing scheme is related to the area-minimizing scheme introduced by Almgren-Taylor-Wang [F. Almgren et al., SIAM J. Control Optimization 31, No. 2, 387–438 (1993; Zbl 0783.35002)].
