Finite time breakup of viscous filaments

  • M. Renardy

Abstract.

We analyze a model equation for the evolution of surface tension driven instabilities on a viscous jet. For a general class of initial data, it is proved that the jet breaks in finite time.

Key words. Liquid jet, breakup, surface tension.
