This talk concerns the time evolution of a spatially uniform non-equilibruim state to an equilibrium state consisting of two phases. Examples include the condensation of liquid droplets from a supersaturated vapor and the segregation by coarsening of binary alloys. Mathematical models of these complex phenomena lead to a host of interesting problems in dynamical systems. I will discuss some of the strange behaviour of these systems and their significance for the applications.
