A recent paper authored by PhD candidate Longfei Li, his adviser Richard Braun, and their collaborators was a featured in a press release at the website Phys.org. The news article can be found at http://tinyurl.com/k43j2hh.  The scientific paper, entitled "Tear Film Dynamics with Evaporation, Wetting, and Time-Dependent Flux Boundary Condition on an Eye-Shaped Domain," was published in the journal Physics of Fluids on May 6, 2014 (DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.4871714) The collaborators on the article were Kara L. Maki (Assistant Professor, Rochester Institute of Technology), William D. Henshaw (Margaret Darrin Distinguished Professor in Applied Mathematics, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) and P. Ewen King-Smith (Professor Emeritus, College of Optometry, The Ohio State University).  This interdisciplinary group compared a computational model for tear film dynamics with in vivo experimental results.  The aim of the work is to better understand both healthy and unhealthy tear films; the basic understanding from the results can lead to better treatments for conditions such as dry eye, which affects millions.
