    Energy barrier effect on the transient nucleation kinetics is studied. For a high barrier case an advanced interpolation of the "boundary-layer" type is suggested that is valid for the entire time interval. The nucleation kinetics for the "nucleated cluster" size n[sub c] is described, the lag...
