Abstract

We develop a variational approximation allowing to study under realistic physical conditions the interior dynamics of cavitating gas bubbles in liquids. We discuss in some detail the intricacy of the gas bubble dynamics related to the small size of the system. We also show how to formulate the problem in the framework of the energy equation for non-adiabatic processes.
