Early growth of density fluctuations of nuclear matter in the spinodal region is investigated employing the stochastic mean-field approach. In contrast to the earlier treatments in which only collective modes were included in the calculations, in the present work noncollective modes are also included, thus providing a complete treatment of the density correlation functions. Calculations are carried out for symmetric matter in a nonrelativistic framework using a semiclassical approximation.
