In this chapter we will examine the growth of particles in a matrix via a number of mechanisms First we consider growth or solidification from a supercooled melt, second growth in a supersaturated matrix, and third growth by interface kinetics of first order where mass or heat is transported. We then discuss the growth by interface kinetics of second order and growth of particles or droplets where convective heat or mass fluxes play an important role. The closing section deals with growth under varying, time dependent supersaturation.
