A binary liquid that undergoes directional solidification is susceptible to morphological and solutal-convective instabilities that cause the solid/liquid interface to change from a planar to a cellular state. This paper gives derivations for those long-wave evolution equations that describe the weak couplings between convection and interface morphology and gives some analytical results obtainable from these.
