To improve materials design, it is important to understand the influence of
microstructure on the physical properties of a material. Very often, it is the
nucleation process that dictates the microstructure. We present some recent
joint works with colleagues at Penn State on the computational studies of critical
nuclei morphology, growth and coarsening of microstructures as well as
stability of interacting particle systems.
