### On the global existence for the Muskat problem

The Muskat problem models the dynamics of the interface between two incompressible immiscible fluids with different constant densities. In this work we prove three results. First we prove an ${L}^{2}\left(\mathbb{R}\right)$ maximum principle, in the form of a new “log” conservation law which is satisfied by the equation (1) for the interface. Our second result is a proof of global existence for unique strong solutions if the initial data is smaller than an explicitly computable constant, for instance ${\u2225f\u2225}_{1}\le 1/5$. Previous results of this...
