Title: Boundary-interface interaction in fluid dynamics models

Abstract: The interaction between a fluid and a solid boundary  is a phenomenon not completely understood. An example is the interplay between an interface separating two fluids and the bottom of a channel: in the simplest case, when one of the two fluid is the air, the mechanism of “drying” or  “wetting” some regions of the boundary seems to be  possible also in absence of the classical mechanisms  based on  surface tension or dissipation. In the last years we have concentrated our works on  mathematical structures that can capture such wetting phenomena in the case of really simple models such as shallow water models or their multi-layer counterparts.
