**Liquid Layers, Capillary Interfaces and Floating Bodies**

by Erich Miersemann

**Publisher**: Leipzig University 2013**Number of pages**: 209

**Description**:

In these notes we study liquid layers, capillary interfaces and floating bodies. The leading term in the associated equilibrium equation for the interface is the mean curvature. In the case of liquid layers no volume constraint or contact angle occur.
