Existence of the two universality classes in quasi-one dimensional ordering kinetics of layered Ising-like magnets is demonstrated. In polymer melts, loops of correlated reptating chains are found to be important for moarphology dynamics We also argue for apparent violation of the monomer density conservation law in polymer blends.
