Abstract

Corrections to the standard expressions for the volume fraction of the crystalline phase which arise due to time-dependent nucleation effects are considered both for the isothermal (transient) and nonisothermal (quench) situations. Analytical results are tested against numerically exact solutions of the Turnbull-Fisher nucleation equations. Physical consequences of the obtained expressions are discussed.
