"Dynamics near the wetting transition"

Abstract

We explore the dynamics of interfacial motion in the proximity of a wetting transition. We do this both in the framework of a grain boundary coupled to an exterior surface which is evolving under the influence of surface diffusion, and for antiphase boundaries coupled to interphase boundaries within the interior of a material specimen. In both cases, some surprises are in store.
