Abstract
Evolutionary PDEs on stationary and moving surfaces appear in many applications such as the diffusion of surfactants on fluid interfaces, surface pattern formation on growing domains, segmentation on curved surfaces and phase separation on biomembranes and dissolving alloy surfaces. In this talk I discuss three numerical approaches based on:- (I) Surface Finite Elements and Triangulated Surfaces, (II)Level Set Method and Implicit Surface PDEs and (III) Phase Field Approaches and Diffuse Surfaces.
