Abstract

In this paper we derive estimates to the free boundary problem for the Euler equation with surface tension, and without surface tension provided the Rayleigh-Taylor sign condition holds. We prove that as the surface tension tends to 0, when the Rayleigh-Taylor condition is satisfied, solutions converge to the Euler flow with zero surface tension.
