Abstract:   We consider the problem of the evolution of the interface given by two incompressible fluids through a porous medium, which is known as the Muskat problem and in two dimensions it is mathematically analogous to the two-phase Hele-Shaw cell. We focus on a fluid interface given by a jump of densities, being the equation of the evolution obtained using Darcy's law.
