Forever blowing bubbles, mathematically speaking…

June30

Robert I. Saye, a PhD student in applied mathematics, and James A Sethian, professor of mathematics at University of California, Berkeley, have come up with a set of mathematical equations to describe how the bubbles in foam rearrange themselves. The problem with describing foams mathematically has been that the evolution of a bubble cluster a few […]
