Filling a gap in the literature, this crucial publication on therenowned Lifshitz-Slezov-Wagner Theory of first-order phasetransitions is authored by one of the scientists who gave it itsname. Prof Slezov spent decades analyzing this topic and obtained anumber of results that form the cornerstone of this rapidlydeveloping branch of science.
Following an analysis of unresolved problems together with proposedsolutions, the book develops a theoretical description of theoverall course of first-order phase transformations, starting fromthe nucleation state right up to the late stages of coarsening. Inso doing, the author illustrates the results by way of numericalcomputations and experimental applications. The outline of thegeneral results is performed for segregation processes in solutionsand the results used in the analysis of a variety of differenttopics, such as phase formation in multi-component solutions,boiling in one- and multi-component liquids, vacancy clusterevolution in solids with and without influence of radiation, aswell as phase separation in helium at low temperatures.
The result is a detailed overview of the theoretical description ofthe whole course of nucleation-growth processes and applicationsfor a wide audience of scientists and students.
