Some of the perturbative vacua of open string theory are
known to be unstable. They decay to other (meta-)stable vacua.
We will consider the dynamics of this relaxation process (decay).
In particular, the equation that describes an inhomogeneous decay
turns out to be a variant of a non-linear partial differential equation
that appears in many other areas. We will point out their similarities
and differences.
