Cellular states in a boundary-layer model of directional solidification

Alain Karma, Nigel Goldenfeld

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We use a boundary-layer model to study the cellular states in directional solidification. Away from threshold a gap develops in the center of the band of allowed states, and the boundaries of the Eckhaus instability move toward longer wavelength.
