On the motion of a curve by its binormal curvature. (English) Zbl 1327.53086
This paper is dedicated to the study of the binormal curvature flow of curves in \(\mathbb{R}^{3}\). The authors have considered weak binormal curvature flows for finite mass currents. The paper consists of 5 parts, each of them very interesting. In Section 5, the authors have presented some examples and open questions but also some graphical results for the theory developed all over the paper.
