Brief Communications


  1. 1.

    It is suggested that systems of limiting stability may exist, and for these the determinant formed from second derivatives of thermodynamic coordinates xi, j with respect to the forces Xi, Xj tends to zero.

  2. 2.

    The states of limiting stability, whose existence follows from the first hypothesis, are identical with the state of matter at T=0, the superdiamagnetic state, and the state at pressure of limiting high value. The identity of properties is not complete in all three cases.
