Microstructure is a feature of crystals with multiple symmetry-related energy-minimizing states. Continuum models have been developed explaining microstructure as the mixture of these symmetry-related states on a fine scale to minimize energy. This article is a review of numerical methods and the numerical analysis for the computation of crystalline microstructure.
