Numerical gradient flow discretization of viscous thin films on curved geometries

Abstract

The evolution of a viscous thin film on a curved geometry is numerically approximated based on the natural time discretization of the underlying gradient flow. This discretization leads to a variational problem to be solved at each time step, which reflects the balance between the decay of the free (gravitational and surface) energy and the viscous… (More)
