Consistency of a large time-step scheme for mean curvature motion
We propose a new scheme for the level set approximation of motion by mean curvature (MCM). The scheme originates from a representation formula recently given by Soner and Touzi, which allows us to construct large time-step, Godunov-type schemes. One such scheme is presented and its consistency is analyzed. We also provide and discuss some numerical tests.
