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

ABSTRACT:
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.
