On the Existence and Stability of Quadrijunctions



John W. Cahn, E S. Vanleck


The existence and stability of various microstructural features for two-phase materials with anisotropic energies is discussed. In particular, the existence of quadri and tri-junctions for energies with different symmetry properties is examined. An Ising type model is analyzed and the results of computer simulations are presented.
