Fingered growth in channel geometry: a Loewner-equation approach.


A simple model of Laplacian growth is considered, in which the growth takes place only at the tips of long, thin fingers. Following Carleson and Makarov [L. Carleson and N. Makarov, J. Anal. Math. 87, 103 (2002)], the evolution of the fingers is studied with use of the deterministic Loewner equation. The method is then extended to study the growth in a… (More)
