As known, the chemical potential is a thermodynamic variable useful for describing phase equilibria. Nowadays, application of these criteria is supported by considering the fugacity, f, which replaces the chemical potential, [mu], while lacking its drawbacks.
The first volume focuses on thermodynamics and kinetics, including phase equilibria; defect thermodynamics; stoichiometry; the shape of crystals and the structure of melt; the theory of nucleation; growth mechanisms; Monte Carlo simulations; chemical potential analysis; simulation of epitaxial growth by density functional theory, kinetic, Monte Carlo, and phase field methods; and experimental modeling of crystallization.
