DESCRIPTION:\n * DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: 1 MARCH 2018 *\n \n\n The
School aims at introducing students both to the basic ideas and to the
most recent breakthroughs in the field of extrinsic curvature flows\, a fu
ndamental research direction at the intersection of Analysis and Geometry\
, with deep connections to the theories of minimal surfaces and of diffusi
ve partial differential equations.\n Extrinsic flows have important applic
ations to the geometry of submanifolds\, as their study provides an effect
ive strategy for obtaining topological classification results and for prov
ing sharp geometric inequalities.\n In a broader context\, extrinsic flows
arise in describing the dynamics of interfaces in physical and biological
sciences\, a fact that provides a strong scientific motivation for their
mathematical inquiry.\n Virtually all the different approaches to mean cur
vature flows will be accounted for\, with particular emphasis on the funda
mental problem of singularities formation.\n A major goal of the School wi
ll indeed be putting the best students in the position of understanding th
e many open problems in the field.\n\nPRELIMINARY LIST OF LECTURERS\nS. An
