    • Crystal growth as an excitable medium 

      Cartwright J.H.E.; Checa A.G.; Escribano B.; Sainz-Díaz C.I. (Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences, 2012-12-31)
      Crystal growth has been widely studied for many years, and, since the pioneering work of Burton, Cabrera and Frank, spirals and target patterns on the crystal surface have been understood as forms of tangential crystal ...
    • Three-dimensional coarsening dynamics of a conserved, nematic liquid crystal-isotropic fluid mixture 

      Nós R.L.; Roma A. M.; Garcia-Cervera C.J.; Ceniceros H.D. (Journal of Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics, 2017-09)
      We present a numerical investigation of the three-dimensional coarsening dynamics of a nematic liquid crystal-isotropic fluid mixture using a conserved phase field model. The model is a coupled system for a generalized ...
