Title: The Diffuse Interface Method with Applications in Tumor Growth, Crystal Growth, and Fluid Dynamics
Affiliation: University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Abstract. Despite its limitations, the diffuse interface method has become widely used as a tool for characterizing and computing the motion of interfaces in materials and fluids. In this talk the speaker presents a gentle introduction to the diffuse interface method, contrasts it with some sharp interface methods, and shows some applications of the method in the study of tumor growth, phase transformations, and fluid dynamics.
