Some of the specific problems solved were the migration of vacancies and interstitial atoms in an isotropic medium under the elastic interaction to a finite string-cluster, to an infinite string-cluster, to an edge dislocation, and to several disk clusters. The study was then extended to the migration of substitutional atoms to a disk cluster under the elastic interaction in which quenched-in vacancies have formed an atmosphere around the disk under the influence of the elastic interaction. These analyses are limited by the assumption of isotropy of the elastic constants. The extension of the study to anisotropic materials has been started by first considering the interaction between dislocations and point defects in cubic medium. Currently the work is being extended to disk clusters in several hexagonal media. Author
