Dynamics of Transport in Liquid Films

2:45 PM-4:45 PM
Room: Liberty A

Liquid films exhibit a large variety of complex dynamics, especially in the context of transport. Recent work has highlighted the role that structures ranging from undercompressive waves to tiny convection rolls can play in the array of patterns observed in experiments. This minisymposium brings together researchers doing analysis, computation, and experiments in this rapidly developing area.
