About these proceedings
This IMA Volume in Mathematics and its Applications DEGENERATE DIFFUSIONS is based on the proceedings of a workshop which was an integral part of the 1990- 91 IMA program on "Phase Transitions and Free Boundaries". The aim of this workshop was to provide some focus in the study of degenerate diffusion equations, and by involving scientists and engineers as well as mathematicians, to keep this focus firmly linked to concrete problems. We thank Wei-Ming Ni, L.A. Peletier and J.L. Vazquez for organizing the meet ing. We especially thank Wei-Ming Ni for editing the proceedings. We also take this opportunity to thank those agencies whose financial support made the workshop possible: the Army Research Office, the National Science Foun dation, and the Office of Naval Research.
