Let N be a (n+1)-dimensional globally hyperbolic Lorentzian manifold with a compact Cauchy hypersurface and a curvature function F, which is either the mean curvature, the root of the second symmetric polynomial or a curvature function of class (K*). We consider curvature flows with curvature function F and a volume preserving term and prove long time existence of the flow and exponential convergence of the graphs in the C-infinity topology to a hypersurface of constant F-curvature, provided there are barriers. Furthermore we examine stability properties and foliations of constant F-curvature hypersurfaces.

Sei N eine (n+1)-dimensionale global hyperbolische Lorentzmannigfaltigkeit mit einer kompakten Cauchy-Hyperflaeche und F eine Kruemmungsfunktion, welche entweder die mittlere Kruemmung, die Wurzel des zweiten elementarsymmetrischen Polynoms oder eine Kruemmungsfunktion der Klasse (K*) ist. Wir betrachten Kruemmungsfluesse mit Kruemmungsfunktion F und einem volumenerhaltendem Term und beweisen die Langzeitexistenz des Flusses, sowie die exponentielle Konvergenz der Graphen in der C-unendlich Topologie zu einer Hyperflaeche konstanter F-Kruemmung unter der Voraussetzung von Barrieren. Weiterhin untersuchen wir Stabilitaetseigenschaften und Blaetterungen von Hyperflaechen konstanter F-Kruemmung.
