This chapter presents theoretical developments in the treatment of atomic clustering. The theory is applicable to atomic species, which broadly include lattice or surface atoms, molecules, impurities or point defects. The theory is applied in two general areas: on studies of nucleation and growth of precipitates during solidification of metallic alloys, and on atomic clustering on surfaces during deposition of vapour or energetic atoms.

Keywords:   atomic clustering, nucleation theory, microstructure evolution, spinodal composition, lattice atoms, surface atoms
