Abstract

Modeling is an important tool to better understand crystal growth. This assertion is discussed via examples of classical models that have proven to be enlightening. The discussion continues with a brief primer on the mathematical governing equations of continuum and interfacial phenomena important in crystal growth processes and several techniques that can be applied to these equations for analysis, including scaling and numerical methods. Finally, some examples of modeling a melt growth system are presented to illustrate modern applications.
