Paper Title:
Monte Carlo Potts Model Simulation and Statistical Theory of 3D Grain Growth
  Abstract

An improved Monte Carlo (MC) Potts model algorithm has been implemented allowing an extensive simulation of three-dimensional (3D) normal grain growth. It is shown that the simulated microstructure reaches a quasi-stationary state, where the growth of grains can be described by an average self-similar volumetric rate of change, which depends only on the relative grain size. Based on a quadratic approximation of the volumetric rate of change a generalized analytic mean-field theory yields a scaled grain size distribution function that is in excellent agreement with the simulation results.
