The evolution equation of an interface based on a mass transfer and that based on a heat transfer are unified into a nonlinear evolution equation for two spatial variables, and the properties of the solution of this equation are discussed without employing any linear approximations. Then, through these discussions, the intrinsic conditions which characterize the morphological stability are exhibited.
