Local non-collapsing of volume for the Lagrangian mean curvature flow

  • Knut SmoczykEmail author


We prove an optimal control on the time-dependent measure of a measurable set under a reparametrized Lagrangian mean curvature flow of almost calibrated submanifolds in a Calabi–Yau manifold. Moreover we give a classification of those Lagrangian translating solitons in \({{\mathbb {C}}^{m}}\) that evolve by this reparametrized flow.
