Synopsis:

The class is devoted to the description of multiphase systems by the phase-field method base on the theory of dynamic critical phenomena and on the Cahn -Hilliard theory for single-component and multi-comopnent systém in dynamics of continua. This method allows for description of material systems in very small scales where the 1-st order and 2-nd order phase changes can occur.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

1. State variables in systems out of equilibrium.2. Basics of variational calculus.3. Basics on differential geometry on hypersurfaecs.3. Thermodynamic potentials in systems with interfaces.4. Cahn -Hilliard theory.5. Phase-field equations for single -component systems.6. Phase-field equations for multi -component systems.7. Phase-field-crystal method.
