Abstract [en]

Sufficient conditions for either stability or instability of the interface of a fluid drop subject to localized surface stresses are presented. The stated conditions pertain to the case of an axisymmetric sessile drop having a fixed contact line and subject to axisymmetric forces acting on the surface of the drop. These conditions, appearing for the first time in the literature, are in the form of pointwise inequalities. They have quite general applicability, as they do not rely on explicit knowledge of the specific nature of an externally applied surface force. Supplementary integral inequalities are also provided and discussed.
