Many physically interesting problems involve propagation of free surfaces. Multi-phase flows, crystal growth and solidification are some of these examples. Numerical solutions of these problems play an important role in understanding the underlying physical mechanism.
Two basic approaches are commonly used in solving these problems numerically. One is based on front-tracking, the other on front-capturing. They both have their advantages and disadvantages. Front-tracking usually provides a better resolution to the free surface. Front-capturing is more robust in handling complicated geometry in the free surface.
This symposium intends to bring together experts from these two schools and present some recent developments in these areas. Physical modeling, mathematical analysis, new fast algorithms, and various physical applications will be discussed.
