Title:Discretization of PDEs on evolving interfaces

Abstract:
We consider a ow problem with two di erent immiscible incompressible newto- nian phases ( uid- uid or uid-gas). In many applications so-called surfactants play an important role. These attach to the interface and are transported, due to di usion and convection, on the evolving interface. This surfactant trans- port can be modeled by a convection-di usion equation on the surface. In this talk we present a nite element method for the discretization of the surfactant equation on the evolving interface.
