Abstract

Huisken and Sinestrari have recently defined a surgery process for mean curvature flow when the initial data is a two-convex hypersurface. The process depends on a parameter H. Its role is to initiate a surgery when the maximum of the mean curvature of the evolving hypersurface becomes H, and to control the scale at which each surgery is performed. We prove that as H goes to infinity the surgery process converges to level set flow.
