[en] Evidence of fractal grain boundaries is found in polycrystals when radial patterns are found to result from a geometrical competition between different grains that have nucleated on the same center. A simple statistical model presented herein predicts the universal fractal dimension 2.33 of such natural patterns grown through internal competition. The application to material patterns having constrained front propagation involving many components is obvious.
