We present a detailed analysis of a laterally one-dimensional continuum model for target particle redeposition during ion-beam erosion under normal incidence. We show that the redeposition mechanism can be approximated by a Taylor expansion around the mean surface height and clarify the impact of redeposition on nano-scale patterning. Most importantly, we show that stable well-ordered periodic patterns can result in a common Kuramoto-Sivashinsky-like continuum model for ion-beam erosion in cooperation with the model for particle redeposition and identify parameter ranges where they appear.
