Non-Trivial Self-Similar Extinction Solutions for a 3D Hele–Shaw Suction ProblemGeorg Prokert and E. Vondenhoff (1) TU Eindhoven, Netherlands

We show the existence of noncircular, self-similar solutions to the three-dimen\-sional Hele--Shaw suction problem with surface tension regularisation up to complete extinction. In an appropriate scaling, these solutions are found as bifurcation solutions to a nonlocal elliptic equation of order three. The bifurcation parameter is the ratio of the suction speed and the surface tension coefficient.
Keywords: Hele–Shaw flow, bifurcation solution
