Solidification of binary alloys is characterized by a sharp structural transition across the solid-liquid interface. It is a typical situation which suggests a nonlocal dependence of the appropriate thermodynamic potential on its associate fields. Phase-field models with a gradient contribution for the order parameter have proved to account for… (More)
