The spreading of insoluble surfactant on a thin liquid film is modeled by a pair of nonlinear partial differential equations for the height of the free surface and the surfactant concentration. A numerical method is developed in which the leading edge of the surfactant is tracked. In the absence of higher order regularization the system becomes hyperbolic… CONTINUE READING
