Thermodynamics of alloys
In this chapter we will present briefly some basic thermodynamic relations that are useful in understanding the fundamentals of growth and coarsening of particles embedded in a matrix. The reader who is already familiar with the concepts of free energy, chemical potential, equilibrium of heterogeneous alloys, the Gibbs-Thomson effect etc. may skip this chapter.
