The problem of simulating solid-state dewetting of thin films in three dimensions (3D) by using a sharp-interface approach is considered in this paper. Based on the thermodynamic variation, a speed method is used for calculating the first variation to the total surface energy functional. The speed method shares more advantages than the traditional use of parameterized curves (or surfaces), e.g., it is more intrinsic and its variational structure (related with Cahn-Hoffman \$\boldsymbol{\xi… Expand
