Abstract: The Muskat equation governs the motion of an interface separation of two incompressible fluids in a porous media (the interface between oil and water in sand) . In this talk I will review results on

(1) Local and global well-posedness in the stable regime (heavier fluid below).

(2) The existence of solutions which shift stability regimes and breakdown.

(3) The existence of mixing solutions in the fully unstable regime.
