Part of the Lecture Notes of the Unione Matematica Italiana book series (UMILN, volume 13)


Let us consider warm water on cold ice, for instance water flowing on a frozen lake. On the surface of the lake, there is a discontinuity of temperature between the temperature T 2 of the liquid water which is larger than the water freezing temperature T 0 and the temperature T 1 of the ice of the lake which is lower than T 0. It is to be known if the water freezes or if the ice thaws, [111, 153].
