Floating Bodies Subject To Capillary Attractions

Robert Finn


Admissible shapes of bodies are characterized, according to the range of configurations in which the body can be made to float in a bath with horizontal surface, in the presence of capillary attractions. This is an expanded version of a paper in the MIS preprint series of 2006, with the same author and title.
