DLA with Short-Range Interactions

  • M. A. Novotny
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 167)


Recently there has been a great deal of theoretical and experimental interest in growth processes and associated pattern-formation phenomena. Excellent reviews are provided in other contributions to these proceedings1 and in Ref. 2. Progess has been made in understanding widely different phenomena, including viscous fingering in Hele-Shaw cells,3,4 fluid-fluid displacement in porous inedia,5,6 electric breakdown,7 electrodeposition,8 the formation of snowflakes,9 and the irreversible kinetic aggregation of gold colloids10 and uniform polystyrene spheres.11
