Extinction Behaviour of Contracting Bubbles in Porous Media
This paper is concerned with bubble contraction in porous media otherwise filled with viscous fluid. We suppose that an external pressure is applied to the (fixed) boundary of a porous medium, forcing a bubble to contract towards a point. By using the Baiocchi transform, we are able to give a rather complete asymptotic description of the process at times just before the bubble vanishes. The application of time-reversal to the results leads to implications for bubble nucleation.
