TAPIA, VÍCTOR. Evolution of curvature tensors under mean curvature flow. Rev.colomb.mat. [online]. 2009, vol.43, n.2, pp. 175-185. ISSN 0034-7426.
We obtain the evolution equations for the Riemann tensor, the Ricci tensor and the scalar curvature induced by the mean curvature flow. The evolution of the scalar curvature is similar to the Ricci flow, however, negative, rather than positive, curvature is preserved. Our results are valid in any dimension.
