Abstract

We prove that a sufficient condition ensuring that the mean curvature flow commutes with a Riemannian submersion is that the submersion has minimal fibers. We then lift some results taken from the literature (i.e., Andrews and Baker in J Differ Geom 85:357–395, 2010; Baker in The mean curvature flow of submanifolds of high codimension, 2011; Huisken in J Differ Geom 20:237–266, 1984; Math Z 195:205–219, 1987; Pipoli and Sinestrari in Mean curvature flow of pinched submanifolds of CPn) to create new examples of evolution by mean curvature flow. In particular we consider the evolution of pinched submanifolds of the sphere, of the complex projective space, of the Heisenberg group and of the tangent sphere bundle equipped with the Sasaki metric.
