The Geometric Model of Crystal Growth — An Overview
The geometric model is a phenomenological model of growing dendritic crystals. It is too simple to be accurate physically, but it has played an important role in identifying some of the delicate mathematical issues in the problem. The purpose of this overview is to explain: (a) what the model is; (b) how to interpret its results physically; and (c) its significance in a workshop on Asymptotics Beyond All Orders.
