DESCRIPTION:\n NOTICE TO PARTICIPANTS\n While a detaliled programme of the
School will be posted at a later stage\,\n please be informed that forese
en daily schedule isMonday to Friday\, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.\n It is recommen
ded that participants invited through selection process\n plan their trip
so to arrive in Trieste the day before the School starts\,\n and stay unti
l the day after it ends\, to secure continous attendance.\n * * *\n \n
\n The School aims at introducing students both to the basic ideas and t
o the most recent breakthroughs in the field of extrinsic curvature flows\
, a fundamental research direction at the intersection of Analysis and Geo
metry\, with deep connections to the theories of minimal surfaces and of d
iffusive partial differential equations.\n Extrinsic flows have important
applications to the geometry of submanifolds\, as their study provides an
effective strategy for obtaining topological classification results and fo
r proving sharp geometric inequalities.\n In a broader context\, extrinsic
flows arise in describing the dynamics of interfaces in physical and biol
ogical sciences\, a fact that provides a strong scientific motivation for
their mathematical inquiry.\n Virtually all the different approaches to me
an curvature flows will be accounted for\, with particular emphasis on the
fundamental problem of singularities formation.\n A major goal of the Sch
ool will indeed be putting the best students in the position of understand
ing the many open problems in the field.\n\nPRELIMINARY LIST OF LECTURERS\
