Phase of the Field Trip Lectureson (Paperback)

Phase of the Field Trip Lectureson By Ingo Steinbach Cover Image


This book is, more or less, the script of a lecture series entitled "Phase-Field Theory

and Application," which I give at Ruhr University Bochum (RUB) in my department

Scale-bridging Thermodynamic and Kinetic Simulation (STKS). It strongly rests on

my personal experience during many years in academic and applied research with a

special focus on "phase field." The idea is to combine a very brief presentation of the

materials-related mechanisms alongside the theoretical background of the phasefield

theory and, last but not least, to introduce numerical solutions. The lecture

series is designed for graduate students and newcomers to phase-field theory. There

are many aspects of phase field that will only be covered briefly in this script. At

my university, we are continuing this lecture series with an advanced course in the

format of a discussion seminar. We hope that we can continue with this in a second

volume of the book.

The 12-lecture course, as held at RUB, is condensed to seven lectures in this

book. An eighth lecture, "Quantum Phase Field," is added here that I do only in the

advanced course: Just free your mind and enjoy

Exercises are recommended at the end of each lecture, and suggestions for further

reading are given. Examples are added where appropriate. A short introduction to

the phase-field code OpenPhase academic 1] is added as a "tutorial" with two

examples as a beginning to your own research.
