Title: Spirals moving by mean curvature

Abstract: This is joint work with N. Forcadel and R. Monneau. The aim of the talk is to explain how to describe the motion of a curve in the plane with one end attached at the origin and moving with its normal velocity proportional to its mean curvature (plus a constant term).
