Modeling of large lakes or oceans for environmental studies or deformable blood vessels for mini-invasive surgery involve dynamical free boundaries governed by their interaction with their immediate environment. The object of this paper is to further Shape Analysis techniques in the formulation and analysis of dynamical free boundary problems defined over a time-varying domain (noncylindrical problems). The generic example of a potential incompressible fluid flow with a pressure condition (Bernouilli type) on the dynamical free boundary is presented along with a discrete time algorithm to follow the evolution of the time-varying free boundary. The dynamical free boundary condition yields a new time-space differential equation for the normal component of the velocity field on the time-varying free boundary. These ideas and constructions can be extended to more complex and realistic models.
