Regularity of the free boundary for the one phase Hele–Shaw problem. (English) Zbl 1087.76024
Summary: We prove that, in a local neighborhood, Lipschitz continuous free boundary of a solution of the one-phase Hele-Shaw problem is indeed smooth if the solution is Lipschitz continuous and non-degenerate in the neighborhood.
