In the context of thin polycrystalline films, evolutionary problems arise very naturally where motion by mean curvature is coupled with motion by surface diffusion. We formulate and study such problems in a number of specific geometries. The implications of our results for the stabiity of thin films and measurement of kinetic coefficients are discussed.
