Abstract: Two contributions to the modeling of nucleation are discussed here. The temperature dependence of the crystal-melt interfacial tension can be introduced by scaling of the interfacial parameters to the entropy and enthalpy of fusion. A new simulation of nucleation during solidification in a gas-filled drop tube is discussed. It computes the temperature distribution and convection in the drop and allows introduction, stochastically in space and time, of multiple nuclei with interfering thermal fields.
