Abstract

Recrystallization of a material involves two distinct processes: critical nuclei are produced; these then grow into much larger crystallites. The present theory predicts the distribution of nuclei in orientation and the effect of growth on this initial distribution. The results are in good qualitative agreement with experiments.
