Abstract: From Huisken's monotonicity formula, self-shrinkers describe all possible central blow-up limits of a finite-time singularity of mean curvature flow. We introduce the -functional. Self-shrinkers are critical points of the -functional. Using the second variation of the -functional, some self-shrinkers can be classified. I will talk about recent classification results of self-shrinkers.
