Green’s Identities and Pendent Liquid Drops, I
It is proved that the “bubble solutions” of the capillary equation, whose existence was shown in an earlier paper with Concus, converge, as the vertex height tends to negative infinity, to a solution of the equation which is a graph over the entire base plane with an isolated singularity. This partly settles our previous conjecture, and also provides a new and conceptually preferable proof for existence of such a singular solution. The discussion is based on a form of Green’s Identity that has an independent interest.
