9 Coarsening

image

In the previous chapter, we discussed the phase-separation kinetics or domain coarsening in the kinetic Ising model after a temperature quench from a homogeneous high-temperature phase to a two-phase low-temperature regime. Because of the complexity of the ensuing coarsening process, considerable effort has been devoted to developing continuum, and analytically more tractable, theories of coarsening. While a direct connection to individual spins is lost in such a continuum formulation, the continuum approach provides many new insights ...
