We present a review of our molecular-dynamics simulation studies of kinetic mechanisms in Au/Ag (110) heteroepitaxy and Pt/Pt (111) homoepitaxy. Novel and complicated microscopic kinetic phenomena have been revealed, which help to resolve the origins of the unconventional growth modes in these systems.
