Abstract

We present the first hydrodynamic theory of spinodal decomposition in the fluid phase which accounts for stochastic fluctuations in the stress tensor and heat flux and which incorporates a nonlocal driving force through the pressure gradient dependence. Comparison is made with a molecular dynamics computer experiment for a one-component fluid, and good agreement between theory and experiment is demonstrated.
