The first volume of this work is organized in three levels, so that the portion and importance of thermodynamics and mathematics increase from level to level. The ground level shows that basics of phase equilibria can be understood without thermodynamics provided the concept of chemical potential is introduced early. The intermediate level introduces thermodynamics, culminating in the Gibbs energy as the arbiter for equilibrium. At the third level the accent is on binary systems, where one or more phases are solutions of the components. Priority is given throughout to the thermodynamic assessment of experimental data. 200 exercises are included with solutions.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Equilibrium Between Phases of Matter: Phenomenology and Thermodynamics is a welcome addition to the literature. The text will be useful to advanced undergraduates and first-year graduates . who want to extend their knowledge of phase diagrams and how those diagrams connect to thermodynamics. . also be of value to more experienced practitioners who want to broaden their perspective. . I heartily recommend Equilibrium Between Phases of Matter if you want to enrich your knowledge of phase equilibrium and phase diagrams and their relation to thermodynamics." (John C. Wheeler, Physics Today, February, 2009)
