On the approximation of front propagation problems with nonlocal terms
ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique, Volume 35 (2001) no. 3, p. 437-462

We investigate the approximation of the evolution of compact hypersurfaces of N depending, not only on terms of curvature of the surface, but also on non local terms such as the measure of the set enclosed by the surface.
