We have developed a new technique (based on our Cartesian-representation method) to describe hydrodynamic interactions of a spherical particle with an undeformable planar fluid-fluid interface under creeping-flow conditions. The interface can be either surfactant-free or covered with an incompressible surfactant monolayer. We consider the effect of surface incompressibility and surface viscosity on particle motion. The new algorithm allows to calculate particle mobility coefficients for hydrodynamically coupled particles, moving either on the same or on the opposite sides of the interface.
