A general class of models is introduced which relate the motion of a phase boundary to properties of the local interfacial geometry. These systems can undergo successive destabilizations as they grow, possibly giving rise to nonequilibrium spatial patterns. This formalism has applications to a wide variety of physical problems, especially including dendritic solidification.
