** Cover:**
Interfacial energy variation for an anti-phase boundary in a
face-centered-cubic solid is shown with contours and color on the surface of a
sphere. Lavender indicates the minimum while orange indicates the maximum.
The interfacial energy posesses tetragonal symmetry (point group ).
This visualization was produced by H.E. Rushmeier and J.G. Hagedorn of the
Scientific Computing Environments Division, based on the mathematical modeling
efforts of R.J. Braun and G.B. McFadden (ACMD), J.W. Cahn (Materials Science
and Engineering Laboratory) and A.A. Wheeler (Southampton University).
