Abstract: In this paper we study nonlinear instability in the Swift-Hohenberg equation. The short-time pattern formation under the fully nonlinear setting is rigorously characterized. For unstable constant equilibria, we investigate the nonlinear dynamics of patterns which occur within the time interval of existence.
