In this paper, the dynamics of an interface under the influence of surface tension is studied numerically for flow in the Hele-Shaw cell, where the interface separates an expanding bubble of inviscid fluid from a displaced viscous fluid. Of special interest is the long-time behavior of the so-called q-pole initial data, whose motion is explicitly known and globally smooth for the zero surface tension flow. The numerical method is spectrally accurate and based upon a boundary integral… CONTINUE READING
