Stability of Cahn-Hilliard fronts. (English) Zbl 0939.35022
The Cahn-Hilliard equation on the real axis \[ \partial _t u=\partial _x ^2 (-\partial _x^2 u-u/2+u^3/3) \] is considered. Stability of the kink solution is proved. The proof is based on an inductive renormalization group method. In addition, the detailed asymptotic of the solution is obtained as time tends to infinity.
