Summary:Problems discussed include how differences among dendritic, hopper and polyhedral morphologies occur, why polyhedral crystals show such a wide variety of forms, how growth banding and sector structures appear, and how growth spirals are related to growth conditions. Analyses are made based on the concept of interface roughnesses, crystal growth mechanisms, chemical potential differences between solid and liquid phases, and size of growth units. [R.A.H.]
