At first order phase transitions the transition proceeds through droplet nucleation and growth. We discuss a lattice method for calculating the droplet nucleation rate, including the complete dynamical factors. The method is especially suitable for very strongly suppressed droplet nucleation, which is often the case in physically interesting transitions. We apply the method to the 3-dimensional cubic anisotropy model in a parameter range where the model
has a radiatively induced strong first order phase transition, and compare the
results with analytical approaches.
