Abstract:

Viscous flows interact with liquidfluid interfaces and solidification fronts in a wide variety of technologies including the processing of coatings, polymers, semiconductors single crystals and other advanced materials. This workshop addresses the mathematical treatment of the dynamical and instability phenomena in such flows. Special topics include solidification with flows, wetting lines, and the instabilities of drops and films. Presentations will focus on the development of asymptotic and numerical strategies for solution of these problems. Allen Goldman and John Ockendon will discuss macroscopic models of superconductivity and their relationship to free boundary problems. Professor Goldman will distribute notes for his talks on the physics background of the models.
