2013 (English)In: Annales Academiae Scientiarum Fennicae Mathematica, ISSN 1239-629X, E-ISSN 1798-2383, Vol. 38, no 1, 259-286 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We study the dynamics of roots of f'(zeta, t), where F(zeta, t) is a locally univalent polynomial solution of the Polubarinova-Galin equation for the evolution of the conformal map onto a Hele-Shaw blob subject to injection at one point. We give examples of the sometimes complicated motion of roots, but show also that the asymptotic behavior is simple. More generally we allow f'(zeta, t) to be a rational function and give sharp estimates for the motion of poles and for the decay of the Taylor coefficients. We also prove that any global in time locally univalent solution actually has to be univalent.
