Rate theory and diffusion applied to nucleation, crystal growth, grain growth, recrystallization, precipitation, sintering, and solid-state reactions; role of kinetics and thermodynamics in development of mirostructures. Designed to teach undergraduate seniors and first year graduate students in materials science and engineering the basic rate and its application to such solid state phenomena as diffusion solidification and transformations in solids involving nucleation and growth, spinodol decomposition, and martensitic transformations. The design of experimental techniques to solve materials-related problems is emphasized.
