Title: ABC of kink kinetics and density in a complex solution

This tutorial lecture explains the ways supersaturation in complex solutions may be introduced to be most relevant to describe experimental data on kink and step kinetics. To do so, we express the kink rate via the frequencies of attachment and detachment of the building units and then link these frequencies to the measurable activities of these units in solution. Furthermore, possible reasons for violation of the Gibbs–Thomson law are also briefly discussed with reference to our earlier work.
