Universität Regensburg Mathematik Finite Element Approximation of Coupled Surface and Grain Boundary Motion with Applications to Thermal Grooving and Sintering


We study the coupled surface and grain boundary motion in biand tricrystals in three space dimensions, building on previous work by the authors on the simplified two dimensional case. The motion of the interfaces, which in this paper are presented by two-dimensional hypersurfaces, is described by two types of normal velocities: motion by mean curvature and… (More)
