Abstract: The Hele-Shaw flow of a slow viscous fluid between slightly separated plates is analyzed in the ill-posed case when the fluid recedes due to absorption through a core $ G$. Necessary and sufficient conditions are given on the initial domain occupied by the fluid to ensure the existence of a solution. Regularity of the free boundary is established in certain rather general cases.

Similar results are obtained for the analogous parabolic version, which models the one-phase Stefan problem for supercooled water.
