Abstract

We study the evolution of closed inextensible planar curves under a second order flow that decreases the p-elastic energy. A short time existence result for p ∈ (1 , ∞) is obtained via a minimizing movements method. For p= 2, that is in the case of the classic elastic energy, long-time existence is retrieved.
