Viscous instabilities for flow through porous media are usually studied mathematically on the basis of continuum differential equations, with macroscopic parameters which represent spatial averages over properties of the porous material, and of the configurations of fluids therein. This paper discusses small-scale theoretical models dealing with the regime of viscous instability, how they work, and how they relate to diffusion limited aggregation.
