When a solid surface is bombarded with a broad ion beam at a relatively large angle of incidence, the surface often develops a terraced form. We introduce a model that includes an improved approximation to the sputter yield and that produces a terraced surface morphology at long times for a wide range of parameter values. Numerical integrations of our… (More)
