### Well-posedness for the classical Stefan problem and the zero surface tension limit

Abstract:

We develop a framework for a {\em unified} treatment of well-posedness for the Stefan problem with and without surface tension. In the absence of surface tension, we provide new estimates for the regularity of the moving free-surface. We construct solutions as a limit of a carefully chosen sequence of approximate solutions to our so-called $\kappa$-problem, in which moving surface is regularized and the boundary condition is modified. We conclude by proving that solutions of the Stefan probl...
