Abstract. Nucleation from a metastable state is studied for an Ising
ferromagnet with nearest and next
nearest neighbour interaction and at very
The typical escape path is shown to follow a
sequence of configurations with a growing droplet of stable
phase whose shape is determined by
dynamical considerations and differs significantly from
equilibrium shape corresponding to the instanantenous volume.
