This is a brief survey of recent studies on infiltration problems of a group in Tsinghua University. The main interest of this group is qualitative analysis of the solutions to infiltration equations or systems. Three topics are concerned in this survey: 1. Diffusion with absorbtion; 2. Infiltration processes in layered media; 3. Fluid-solute- heat flow in porous media.
