The phase-field system is a mathematical model of phase transition, coupling temperature with a continuous order parameter which describes degree of solidification. The flow induced by this system is shown to be smoothing in H1×L2 and a global attractor is shown to exist. Furthermore, in low-dimensional space, the flow is essentially finite dimensional in the sense that a strongly attracting finite-dimensional manifold (or set) exists.
