We consider the small-time behavior of interfaces of zero contact angle solutions to the thin-film equation. For a certain class of initial data, through asymptotic analyses, we deduce a wide variety of behavior for the free boundary point. These are supported by extensive numerical simulations. © 2007 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics
