.  in ``Sala dei Seminari'' of the Department of Mathematics
.  Giovanni Bellettini, from Rome University, "Tor Vergata" 
   will present

Remarks on the variational nature of heat equation
and motion by mean curvature

We show that the classical solution of the heat equation
can be seen as the minimizer of a suitable functional defined in
space-time. Using similar ideas, we introduce a functional
$\mathcal F$ on the class of space-time tracks of moving hypersurfaces,
and we relate minimizers of $\mathcal F$ to solutions
of mean curvature flow.
