# A large-scale statistical study of the coarsening rate in models of Ostwald-Ripening.

@article{Naraigh2019ALS, title={A large-scale statistical study of the coarsening rate in models of Ostwald-Ripening.}, author={Lennon 'O N'araigh and Andrew Gloster}, journal={arXiv: Computational Physics}, year={2019} }

In this article we look at the coarsening rate in two standard models of Ostwald Ripening. Specifically, we look at a discrete droplet population model, which in the limit of an infinite droplet population reduces to the classical Lifshitz--Slyozov--Wagner model. We also look at the Cahn--Hilliard equation with constant mobility. We define the coarsening rate as $\beta=-(t/F)(d F/d t)$, where $F$ is the total free energy of the system and $t$ is time. There is a conjecture that the long-time…

This work shows that the Cahn-Hilliard phase-separation mechanism contains a hyperdiffusion term and it is shown that, by stirring the mixture at a sufficiently large amplitude, it excite the diffusion and overwhelm the segregation to create a homogeneous liquid.
