Abstract

In this paper, a comparison study of conservative Allen-Cahn and Cahn-Hilliard equations is presented. We consider two mass-conservative Allen-Cahn equations and two Cahn-Hilliard equations with constant and variable mobilities. The equations are discretized using finite difference schemes, and discrete systems of the equations are solved using a nonlinear multigrid method. The generation and motion of interface are investigated for the conservative equations. We then present numerical experiments which highlight different dynamics of the four equations.
