For the purpose of studying the integration of two different ethnic populations, we compare their evolution with that of a mixture of two fluids. For this model we consider the concentration of only one species, whose evolution will be described by a Cahn-Hilliard equation. Instead, the separation between the two phases will be controlled by the educational levels of two components. Finally, we assume that the homogenization phase occurs when the mean of the cultural levels is greater then a critical value.
