On Gallium in the Alpha and Delta Plutonium Lattice
The stability of delta-phase plutonium-gallium alloys is a subject of great interest to plutonium metallurgists. A survey of progress on the subject could begin with reference to the paper by Goldberg and Shyne  and the use of the references given in that paper. The present effort introduces some general ideas that are offered in an attempt to further an understanding of the nature of the delta-phase plutonium-gallium alloys and their stability. Special attention is given to a hypothesis relating to the role of gallium atom positions in the plutonium lattice.
