    • Abstract

       

      In this series of articles, the authors discuss various phenomenain fluid dynamics, which may be investigated via tabletopexperiments using low-cost or home-made instruments.The tenth article in this series demonstrates the use of thearea-minimization property of soap films in the computationof analog solutions to mathematical problems.
