In mathematics, specifically differential geometry, a geometric flow is the gradient flow associated to a functional on a manifold which has a geometric interpretation, usually associated with some extrinsic or intrinsic curvature.

These are of fundamental interest in the calculus of variations, and include several famous problems and theories. Particularly interesting are their critical points.
