    The characteristic times of establishing the steady rate of nucleation on soluble aerosol particles containing surfactants have been determined in sub-equilibrium, near-equilibrium, sub-critical, near-critical and super-critical regions of droplet sizes. It has been shown that the largest is the...

    We have studied the temperature dependence of gas-to-liquid nucleation in Yukawa fluids with gradient theory and density functional theory. Each of these nonclassical theories exhibits a weaker (i.e., better) temperature dependence than classical nucleation theory. At fixed temperature, the...

    We have investigated droplet nucleation and bubble cavitation in the quantum fluid helium-3 based on a nonlocal density-functional approach. A marked effect of droplet (or bubble) curvature on the rate of droplet nucleation or cavitation has been found. Without considering this curvature effect...
