This ebook matters the matter of evolution of a around oil spot surrounded by means of water whilst oil is extracted from a good contained in the spot. It seems that the boundary of the spot continues to be an algebraic curve of measure 4 during evolution. This curve is identical to an ellipse less than a mirrored image with admire to a circle.
