Abstract: Self-expanders are special solutions to mean curvature flow, in which a later time slice is a scale-up copy of an earlier one. They are expected to model the behavior of a mean curvature flow when it emerges from a cone-like singularity, as well as to model the long-time behavior of the flow. In this talk, I will discuss some recent results about global properties for the space of self-expanders asymptotic to cones. If time permits, I will also discuss applications to questions in minimal surface theory.
