Spindodal Decomposition in the Cahn-Hilliard Model

Part of my research has been focused on mathematical models for phase separation in binary alloys, in particular on the phenomenon of spinodal decomposition. Below you can see some movies of simulated phase separation in the Cahn-Hilliard model, for a variety of values of the total mass m.

m = 0.0
m = 0.1
m = 0.2
m = 0.3
m = 0.4
m = 0.5
