Abstract: We investigate the description of soap films by means of capillarity theory, discussing the interaction between various length scales, like the volume of the soap film, the size of the boundary wire frame and the thickness of the liquid/air phase transitiion. This talk is based on joint works with (different combinations of) Darren King, Michael Novack, Daniel Restrepo, Antonello Scardicchio, and Salvatore Stuvard.
