    A Thermodynamic Approach To Grain Growth And Coarsening
    with J. Svoboda and P. Fratzl
    Philosophical Magazine 83 (9): 1075-1093. 2003.
    The evolution equations for grain growth and coarsening have been derived in the open literature mainly based on phenomenological considerations. Applying a thermodynamic extremal principle, the evolution equations are derived in a rigorous way. All kinetic parameters are provided directly. Existing relations are proved and generalized
