Abstract

This paper concerns closed hypersurfaces of dimension in the hyperbolic space of constant sectional curvature evolving in direction of its normal vector, where the speed equals a power of the mean curvature. The main result is that if the initial closed, weakly h-convex hypersurface satisfies that the ratio of the biggest and smallest principal curvature at everywhere is close enough to 1, depending only on n and , then under the flow this is maintained, there exists a unique, smooth solution of the flow which converges to a single point in in a maximal finite time, and when rescaling appropriately, the evolving hypersurfaces exponential convergence to a unit geodesic sphere of .
