Abstract
The coalescence of two equal-sized deformable drops in an axisymmetric flow is studied,
using a boundary-integral method. An adaptive mesh refinement method is used to
resolve the local small-scale dynamics in the gap and to retain a reasonable speed of
computation. The thin film dynamics is successfully simulated, with sufficient stability
