The thermodynamic properties of the main ordered and disordered phases of copper, silver, and gold alloys are investigated theoretically using the cell approximation in the method of a model electron-density functional. Theoretical and experimental data for the energy of alloy formation, equilibrium volume, omnidirectional compression modulus, and order—disorder transition temperature are in satisfactory agreement.
