Notes

Abstract: We consider the spreading of a charged microdroplet on a
at dielectric surface whose spreading is driven by surface tension and electrostatic
repulsion. This leads to a third order nonlinear partial differential equation
that gives the evolution of the height profile. Assuming the droplets are circular
we are able to prove existence of solutions with infinite contact angle and in
many cases we are able to prove nonexistence of solutions with finite contact
angle.
