We study stability of subsonic phase boundary solutions in the Suliciu model for phase transitions under tri-linear structural relation. With the help of Laplace transform, the evolution of perturbation is described by a linear dynamical system, and explicit solution is obtained in terms of inverse Laplace transform. Stability is established through energy estimates. The relaxed system is also discussed.

A finite-difference scheme with positivity-preserving and entropy-decreasing properties for a nonlinear fourth-order parabolic equation arising in quantum systems and interface fluctuations is derived. Initial-boundary value problems, the Cauchy problem and a rescaled equation are discussed. Based on this scheme we elucidate properties of the long-time asymptotics for this equation.
