Isoperimetric inequalities quantify the maximum amount of a field one can enclose, given a certain amount of fence. The answer to this problem on a nice flat field is solving by arranging the fence into a circle, but as fellow Northeners will know, fields can get quite bumpy, which demands that we pursue the subject of isoperimetric inequalities on more general manifolds. In this talk I will introduce the subjects of geometric flows (in particular Mean Curvature flow) and isoperimetric inequalities on manifolds, and delve a little into how each can help us with studying the other.
