Diffuse-interface modeling of phase segregation in liquid mixtures

Spinodal decomposition of deeply quenched binary mixtures has been the subject of many theoretical, numerical and experimental investigations‡. It is well known that any unstable system is best studied assuming that it is perturbed through a delocalized, infinitesimal fluctuation (Beretta & Gyftopoulos 1991). In this case, in fact, the problem can be… (More)
