dc.description.abstract Simulations of motion by mean curvature in bounded domains, with applications to bubble motionand grain growth, rely upon boundary conditions that are only approximately compatible with the equation of motion. Three closed form solutions for the problem exist, governing translation, rotation and expansion of a single interface [1], providing the only benchmarks for algorithm verification. We derive new identities for the translation solution. Then we estimate the accuracy of a straightforward algorithm to recover the analytical solution for different values of the velocity V given along the boundary. As expected, for large V the error can reach unacceptable levels especially near the boundary. We discuss factors influencing the accuracy and propose a simple modification of the algorithm which improves the computational accuracy. en
