Mechanisms for the Dynamics of Phase Transformations

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 112)

Abstract

An introductory review of the dynamics of (first- order) phase transitions is given. Concepts describing the initial stages of the transition, such as nucleation, spinodal decomposition (in the case of unmixing) are introduced, and their validity is critically discussed. The theoretical results are compared to recent computer simulations and pertinent experiments. Then the scaling concepts describing the late stages of domain growth are discussed, and open problems are outlined.

Keywords

Metastable State Ising Model Spinodal Decomposition Polymer Mixture Nucleation Theory 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
