A new method of identifying the spatio-temporal transition rule of crystal growth is introduced based on the connection between growth kinetics and dentritic\ud morphology. Using a modified three-point-method, curvatures of the considered crystal branch are calculated and curvature direction is used to measure growth\ud velocity. A polynomial model is then produced based on a curvature-velocity relationship to represent the spatio-temporal growth process. A very simple simulation\ud example is used initially to clearly explain the methodology. The results of identifying a model from a real crystal growth experiment show that the proposed\ud method can produce a good representation of crystal growth.
