Interface evolution : the Hele-Shaw and Muskat problems

  title={Interface evolution : the Hele-Shaw and Muskat problems},
  author={Antonio C{\'o}rdoba and Diego C{\'o}rdoba and Francisco Gancedo},
We study the dynamics of the interface between two incompressible 2-D flows where the evolution equation is obtained from Darcy’s law. The free boundary is given by the discontinuity among the densities and viscosities of the fluids. This physical scenario is known as the two-dimensional Muskat problem or the two-phase Hele-Shaw flow. We prove local-existence in Sobolev spaces when, initially, the difference of the gradients of the pressure in the normal direction has the proper sign, an… CONTINUE READING
