Abstract: Recent results in the literature provide computational evidence that stabilized semi-implicit time-stepping method can efficiently simulate phase field problems involving fourth-order nonlinear diffusion, with typical examples like the Cahn-Hilliard equation and the thin film type equation. The up-to-date theoretical explanation of the numerical stability relies on the assumption that the derivative of the nonlinear potential function satisfies a Lipschitz type condition, which in a rigorous sense, implies the boundedness of the numerical solution. I will discuss a group of recent results which remove the Lipschitz assumption on the nonlinearity and prove unconditional energy stability for the stabilized semi-implicit time-stepping methods. Time permitting I will also mention some more recent developments.
