This book provides a complex and rigorous exploration of the model for equipment designers and practical crystal growers. Theoretical and numerical results are obtained for fibers and sheets using a nonlinear mathematical model of the EFG method. Chapters cover the meniscus equation for sheets and fibers- temperature distribution and heat flux- dynamics of the interface, half-thickness of the sheet, and fiber radius- a control procedure for the sheet half-thickness and fiber radius- and minimization of the surface non-uniformity.
