In the forty years since its introduction, the Cahn-Hilliard model has proved its ability to exhibit pattern formation and phase separation phenomena like those being observed in binary metallic alloys. Therefore, understanding the dynamical behavior of the model is of immediate interest in materials sciences. While existing mathematical results for the one-dimensional model provide a fairly complete picture of its rich dynamics, most of the current research focuses on the physically more relevant two- and three-dimensional models, as well as their discrete and multi-component counterparts. The talks in the minisymposium will cover a broad spectrum of these recent studies.
