Regularization in phase transitions with Gibbs-Thomson law
MetadataShow full item record
We study the regularity of weak solutions for the Stefan and Hele- Shaw problems with Gibbs-Thomson law under special conditions. The main result says that whenever the free boundary is Lipschitz in space and time it becomes (instantaneously) C[superscript 2,alpha] in space and its mean curvature is Hölder continuous. Additionally, a similar model related to the Signorini problem is introduced, in this case it is shown that for large times weak solutions converge to a stationary configuration.
