Abstract

Many two-component (A,B) systems crystallize into a random solid solution (1). In such a state the atoms occupy a more or less regular array of lattice sites but each site can be A or B in a random fashion. Then, on lowering the temperature, the system will either phase separate or order, starting at some transition temperature Tc. The aim of these lectures is to present a microscopic approach to the understanding of these scientifically interesting and technologically important processes.
