The authors use a sophisticated analytical and numerical approach to solve linear and non-linear problems associated with the loss of equilibrium and motion in systems containing phase boundaries. The Emphasis is placed on explaining and comparing theory and experiment. Discussions of this study's practical applications include mass exchange in the chemical industry, production of superpure alloys in microgravity, and the storage of liquid hydrocarbons in underground reservoirs.
Convective Instabilities in Systems with Interface provides an in-depth view of problems related to hydrodynamic instabilities induced by interface phenomena between liquid media in microgravity conditions, also known as the Rayleigh-Marangoni-Bernard paradigm.
