Abstract

A maximum entropy description is developed for disordered planar patterns of droplets and applied to the analysis of such patterns formed in a two-dimensional binary mixture during late-stage coarsening. Global correlations, arising from local "packing" constraints, are shown to produce a virtually symmetric shape of the scaled droplet radius distribution. The examination of geometrical and topological pattern statistics reveals a prominent role of screening at short distance, both of domain area fluctuations, as well as of topological charge.
