Introduction to Grain Growth
Peng Yu - Penn State University

I'll give an introduction to the theory and numerical implementation of grain growth in polycrystalline materials. In particular, the derivation of the celebrated von-Neumann's (n-6) rule will be reviewed. In addition to the details of the front-tracking algorithm, I'll present some physical and mathematical interests in having such a simulation system running. If time permits, I'll also sketch some other methodologies for general interface motion.
