Small- and waiting-time behavior of the thin-film equation.

Blowey, J. F. and King, J. R. and Langdon, S. (2007) 'Small- and waiting-time behavior of the thin-film equation.', SIAM journal on applied mathematics., 67 (6). pp. 1776-1807.


We consider the small-time behavior of interfaces of zero contact angle solutions to the thin-film equation. For a certain class of initial data, through asymptotic analyses, we deduce a wide variety of behavior for the free boundary point. These are supported by extensive numerical simulations.
