Equilibrium liquid free-surface configurations: Mathematical theory and space experiments

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Small changes in container shape or in contact angle can give rise to large shifts of liquid in a microgravity environment. We describe some of our mathematical results that predict such behavior and that form the basis for physical experiments in space. The results include cases of discontinuous dependence on data and symmetry-breaking type of behavior. 23 refs., 9 figs.
