Abstract

For the buoyancy-driven motion of a drop in a Hele-Shaw cell, a circle is an exact solution for the shape of the drop. The stability of the shape of a circular drop translating in a Hele-Shaw cell under the action of gravity is investigated. It is shown that for nonzero interfacial tension, the circular shape is linearly stable.
