**Why the Boundary of a Round Drop Becomes a Curve of Order Four**

by A. N. Varchenko, P. I. Etingof

**Publisher**: American Mathematical Society 1992**ISBN/ASIN**: 0821870025**ISBN-13**: 9780821870020**Number of pages**: 72

**Description**:

This book concerns the problem of evolution of a round oil spot surrounded by water when oil is extracted from a well inside the spot. It turns out that the boundary of the spot remains an algebraic curve of degree four in the course of evolution. This text discusses this topic and other recent work in the theory of fluid flows with a moving boundary.
