I describe the recent improvement on the regularity of stable
phase interfaces using the new regularity theory of stable minimal
hypersurfaces with multiplicities. The result shows implicitly why the
phase field approach is so successful in describing the dynamical
interface phenomena. This is a joint work with N. Wickramasekera of
Cambridge University.
