Abstract

We classify all the translating solitons to the mean curvature flow in the threedimensional Heisenberg group that are invariant under the action of some oneparameter group of isometries of the ambient manifold. We provide a complete classification for any canonical deformation of the standard Riemannian metric of the Heisenberg group. We highlight similarities and differences with the analogous Euclidean translators: we mention in particular that we describe the analogous of the tilted grim reaper cylinders, of the bowl solution and of translating catenoids, but some of them are not convex in contrast with a recent result of Spruck and Xiao (Complete translating solitons to the mean curvature flow in R3 with non-negative mean curvature, arXiv:1703.01003v2, 2017) in the Euclidean space. Moreover we also prove some non-existence results. Finally we study the convergence of these surfaces as the ambient metric converges to the standard sub-Riemannian metric on the Heisenberg group
