Title: Algorithms for anisotropic mean curvature flow of networks

Abstract: I will describe joint work in progress with Matt Elsey and Felix Otto on extending the diffusion generated motion algorithm of Merriman, Bence, and Osher to anisotropic mean curvature flow of networks of surfaces. This flow arises in models of grain boundary motion where the surface tension of a boundary may depend on the direction of its normal.
