Description: The Darken regime is an adaptation of Fick's Laws for substitutional diffusion by the motion of vacancies. The Darken equation is an adaptation of Fick's laws for this purpose.

TeX formats:{J_A}' = - \tilde{D}\left (\frac{\partial C_A}{\partial x}\right)
\frac{\partial C_A}{\partial t} = \tilde{D} \left(\frac{\partial C_A}{\partial x}\right)

JA'{{J_A}'} = Diffusion flux (mol.m-2s-1) {mol.m^{-2}s^{-1}}
D {\tilde{D}} = Interdiffusion coefficient (m2s-1) {m^2s^{-1}}
CA {C_A} = Concentration (mol.m-3) {mol.m^{-3}}
x {x} = Position (m) {m}
t {t} = time (s) {s}
