    We study a simple zero-temperature model for phase separation of a binary alloy, in which nearest-neighbor interchange can occur if the fraction of AB pairs is not thereby increased. We present analytic results for the one-dimensional case and numerical results for the infinite dimensionality limit on a Cayley tree. In neither limit does the final fraction of AB pairs agree with the dimension-independent result found previously in d=3, 4, 5. © 1985 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
