Brief description This project will analyse higher order geometric partial differential equations that have important mathematical applications in differential geometry of submanifolds as well as practical applications in physics and mathematical biology. We will prove new general principles that reveal properties of these higher order elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations, producing a unified framework with applications to various specific problems. This project will increase Australia’s research capacity in geometric evolution problems, provide training for some of Australia’s next generation of mathematicians and build Australia's international reputation for significant research in geometric analysis.
