Paper Title:
Normal Grain Growth in Three Dimensions: Monte Carlo Potts Model Simulation and Mean-Field Theory
  Abstract

A modified Monte Carlo Potts model algorithm for single-phase normal grain growth in three dimensions in presented, which enables an extensive statistical analysis of the growth kinetics and topological properties of the microstructure within the quasi-stationary self-similar coarsening regime. From the mean-field theory an analytical grain size distribution function is derived, which is based on a quadratic approximation of the average self-similar volumetric rate of change as a function of the relative grain size as it has been determined from the simulation. The analytical size distribution function is found to be in excellent agreement with the simulation results.
