Classical solvability of the multidimensional free boundary problem for the thin film equation with quadratic mobility in the case of partial wetting

Abstract Full Text(HTML) Related Papers Cited by
  • We prove locally in time the existence of the unique smooth solution (including smooth interface) to the multidimensional free boundary problem for the thin film equation with the mobility n = 2 in the case of partial wetting. We also obtain the Schauder estimates and solvability for the Dirichlet and the Neumann problem for a linear degenerate parabolic equation of fourth order.
