The Cluster Variation Method and the Calculation of Alloy Phase Diagrams

  • D. de Fontaine
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSE, volume 163)

Abstract

I was asked by the Workshop organizers to write a tutorial on the Cluster Variation Method (CVM) in phase diagram calculations. Hence I shall present an elementary treatment of the essential features of the method rather than a comprehensive review.

Keywords

Free Energy Phase Diagram Special Point Cohesive Energy Tricritical Point 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
