### Coarsening in Disordered Dipolar Magnets

We study the kinetics of phase transitions in disordered dipolar

magnets. Using comprehensive Monte Carlo simulations, we perform

deep temperature quenches into the ordered phase to understand the

effects of quenched disorder and long-range dipolar interactions on

domain growth. We observe rough interfaces, anisotropic growth laws

and logarithmic slowing down. Our results are useful to interpret

pattern formation in a wide range of magnetic and dielectric solids.
