ABSTRACT Two mathematical crystallization models describing structure formations in instability zones are proposed and justified. The first model, based on a phase field system, describes crystallization processes in binary alloys. The second model, based on a modified Biot model of a porous medium and the convective Cahn–Hilliard model, governs oriented crystallization. Physical interpretation and numerical analysis are discussed.
