The growth of crystals and the equilibrium structure of their surfaces
Parts I and II deal with the theory of crystal growth, parts III and IV with the form (on the atomic scale) of a crystal surface in equilibrium with the vapour. In part I we calculate the rate ofExpand

On deformation by twinning
Abstract In considerations of the crystallographic directions of loading needed to operate particular twinning systems, due attention is not always paid to the distinction between the strain due toExpand

Abstract The kinetic equations of growth of symmetrically mutually antagonistic self-reproducing systems are considered and shown to lead to instability. It follows that spontaneous asymmetricExpand

  • 6 November 1952
I shall concentrate upon reviewing the important recent change in our appreciation of the facts of supercooling which has been brought about particularly by the work of Turnbull at the GeneralExpand

  • 11 July 1967
The fracture of a brittle solid under a spherical indenter is the best studied case of fracture in a strongly inhomogeneous, well defined, stress field. Two principal topics are discussed, the pathExpand

On the Equations of Motion of Crystal Dislocations
It is shown that when a Burgers screw dislocation moves with velocity v it suffers a longitudinal contraction by the factor (1 - v2/c2)?, where c is the velocity of transverse sound. The total energyExpand

The influence of dislocations on crystal growth
The kinetic theory of the nucleation of new phases, developed especially by Volmer,l by Farkas,2 by Kaischew and Stranski3 and by Becker and DOring4 indicates that under typical conditions * theExpand

One-dimensional dislocations. II. Misfitting monolayers and oriented overgrowth
The equations derived in part I of this series for a one-dimensional dislocation model are applied in this paper to the case of a monolayer on the surface of a crystalline substrate, particularlyExpand
