    This work sheds new light on fundamental aspects of phase separation in polymer-blend thin films. A key feature underlying the theoretical models is the unification of one-dimensional thermodynamic phase equilibria with film evolution phenomena in two- and three dimensions. Initially, an established 'phase portrait' method, useful for visualizing and calculating phase equilibria of polymer-blend films, is generalized to systems without convenient simplifying symmetries. Thermodynamic equilibria alone are then used to explain a film roughening mechanism in which laterally coexisting phases can have different depths in order to minimize free energy. The phase portraits are then utilized to demonstrate that simulations of lateral phase separation via a transient wetting layer, which conform very well with experiments, can be satisfactorily explained by 1d phase equilibria and a 'surface bifurcation' mechanism. Lastly, a novel 3d model of coupled phase separation and dewetting is developed, which demonstrates that surface roughening shadows phase separation in thin films.
