Classical solutions for Hele-Shaw models with surface tension
It is shown that surface tension effects on the free boundary are regularizing for Hele-Shaw models. This implies, in particular, existence and uniqueness of classical solutions for a large class of initial data. As a consequence, we give a rigorous proof of the fact that homogeneous Hele-Shaw flows with positive surface tension are volume preserving and area shrinking.
