Barrett, John W. and Garcke, Harald and Nürnberg, Robert (2012) Numerical computations of facetted pattern formation in snow crystal growth. Preprintreihe der Fakultät Mathematik 7/2012, Working Paper.
Facetted growth of snow crystals leads to a rich diversity of forms, and exhibits a remarkable sixfold symmetry. Snow crystal structures result from diffusion limited crystal growth in the presence of anisotropic surface energy and anisotropic attachment kinetics. It is by now well understood that the morphological stability of ice crystals strongly depends on supersaturation, crystal size and ...
