Description

Providing a comprehensive introduction with the necessary background material to make it accessible for a wide scientific audience, Kinetics of Phase Transitions discusses developments in domain-growth kinetics. This book combines pedagogical chapters from leading experts in this area and focuses on incorporating various experimentally relevant effects—such as disorder, strain fields, and wetting surfaces—into studies of phase ordering dynamics. In addition, it highlights topics garnering recent interest, such as the growth of nanostructures on surfaces. This book also provides a comprehensive overview of numerical techniques, which have proven useful in studying these complex nonlinear problems.

Table of Contents

Introduction to Basic Concepts. Kinetics of Phase Transitions in Solids. Kinetics of Phase Transitions in Fluids. Incorporation of Experimentally Relevant Effects. Novel Directions in the Kinetics of Phase Transitions.
