Some free boundary problems for moving drops: Existence and homogenization

Monday, March 13, 2017 -
3:00pm to 4:00pm
We will present two simplified models describing the motion of a small liquid drop on a solid surface: the thin film equation and the quasi-static approximation. Existence and homogenization results for these models will be presented. Of particular interest to us is the description of a drop sliding down an inclined plane.
