Statistical theory of structural and thermodynamic properties of molecular crystals

  • É. T. Bruk-Levinson
  • V. V. Belov


A crystal theory is constructed on the basis of the statistical method of conditional distributions. A closure procedure is suggested, making it possible to take into account the correlation of various orders, and several structural and thermodynamic quantities are calculated.
