The talk will review recent results on capillary breakup or its absence in liqui d jets. The model considered is a one-dimensional approximation based on cross-section a veraging, and inertia are neglected. Results on finite time breakup or its absence and sim ilarity solutions for the asymptotics of breakup are discussed for several constitutive models.
