Although there is a growing consensus as to the universality of domain growth kinetics in quenced systems, discrepancies remain among theory, experiments, and simulations. We identify a major discrepancy between the three-the time dependence of mass transfer kinetics. We show that this discrepancy can be resolved in Monte Carlo simulations of domain growth. Our results strengthen the emerging consensus that systems having a nonconserved order parameter obey Lifshitz-Allen-Cahn growth kinetics in the asymptotic scaling limit.
