Description:

This Mathematica notebook covers growth of a spherical precipitate from supersaturated solution. Calculates rate constant for diffusional growth, interfacial velocity, concentration profile in matrix using exact solution. Explores using stationary-field approximation to calculate interface velocity and concentration profile. Introduces spherical harmonic functions for describing shape perturbations of a sphere.
