Hierarchy of Cluster Variational Methods on 3-Dimensional Lattices and Application to the Study of FCC Phase Diagrams
Closed form approximations for statistical systems, such as mean field theories or cluster variational technics, are very useful to calculate phase diagrams. The most popular and succesful closed form technic to date is Kikuchi’s Cluster Variation Method (CVM) . The variety of problems that have been analysed with the CVM shows the importance of that technic (for a recent review, see ).
