- Publisher's Summary
- Providing a comprehensive introduction with the necessary background material to make it accessible for a wide scientific audience, "Kinetics of Phase Transitions" presents a timely discussion of current developments in domain-growth kinetics. This book combines pedagogical chapters from various 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.
