Non-linear Stability Models



The linear theory of morphological stability, as shown in Chapter 10, predicts neither the explicit form nor the evolution dynamics of an unstable solid–liquid interface. Instead, linear theory predicts only the system’s initial unstable behavior—viz., evolution through exponential growth or decay—of a single-mode interface perturbation in the form of a sine-wave ripple.
