    Notes: Abstract The main available theories for the dynamics of wetting are brieflysummarized and discussed in reference to experiments. In partial wetting,hydrodynamic and molecular theories are equivalently efficient, even if thephysical meaning of parameters is not so clear in the former ones. Incomplete wetting, hydrodynamic theories are the only ones valid at lowangles, but some care has to be taken in the interpretation of the“slip length” introduced to remove the divergence of thedissipation at the contact line. The situation is less favourable at themolecular scale, where the theoretical description is still at itsbeginning, due to the multiplicity of behaviours.
