VOL. 30 | 1992 Velocity and shape selection in dendritic growth
Michael N. Barber

Editor(s) Robert S. Anderssen, Amiya K. Pani


The problem of dendritic growth in solidification is formulated as a free boundary problem with an emphasis on the role of surface tension and curvature. The solvability theory of steady-state selection is described together with an analysis of time-dependent perturbations of the steady state that suggests a mechanism for sidebranching due to the selective amplification of noise.
