Download A Configurational Model of Matter by G. V. Samsonov PDF

By G. V. Samsonov

The ebook we're offering to American and different English­ conversing readers is a evaluate of the paintings at the electron struc­ ture of components, alloys, and compounds, which was once began again within the fifties. This paintings steadily grew right into a procedure of rules at the electron constitution of condensed topic that is referred to now because the configurational version. This version is predicated at the assumption of the preferential formation of the main reliable configurations of the localized va­ lence electrons in condensed topic. The lifestyles of those reliable configurations and the alternate of electrons with the de­ localized (collective-state) subsystem determines these prop­ erties that are on the topic of the electron constitution. The conclu­ sions which might be drawn from the functions of the configura­ tional version are just qualitative yet they clarify rather truly the character of assorted houses of condensed subject, and they're beneficial within the look for fabrics with targeted homes. the yankee version has been corrected and supplemented in lots of minor respects. in addition, the chance was once taken to revise completely the part at the basics of the configura­ tional version within the gentle of the newest theoretical advancements. different components of the booklet were shortened to get rid of fabric which isn't of basic value or has no longer but been de­ veloped sufficiently fully.

A change in the lattice symmetry is accompanied by changes in such properties as the density, specific heat, conductivity, magnetism, hardness, strength, and plastiCity. erefore, the relationships governing the formation of the crystal structures of the transition metals are important from the theoretical and practical points of view. In general, the stability of a crystal structure is governed by its free energy. Under any given set of conditions the most stable is that modification which has the lowest free energy.

CONFIGURATIONAL MODEL OF SOliDS In the case of boron, the statistical weight of the sp3 configurations is significantly lower than the corresponding weight for diamond and this is why the melting point, forbidden band width, and microhardness have lower values than in the case of diamond. As we go over to aluminum, the stability of the sp configurations decreases even more strongly and the statistical weight of the delocalized electrons increases. This is also observed for gallium, indium, and thallium, which, for all practical purposes, are metals.

E state of the f electrons shifts away from the stable P and f14 configurations (the fO state does not form). It follows from the experimental results (Fig. 6) that the compressibility does indeed decrease from cerium to praseodymium and then to neodymium as the statistical weight of the f7 configurations in metal crystals increases under normal conditions. , the law will be affected by the existence of the collective-state electrons. 243 x 10 4 kgjcm 2). 50 CHAPTER II. PHYSICOCHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF TRANSITION METALS It follows from this interpretation that we can expect irreversible formation of new compounds at high pressures because of the stabilization of the outer shells of atoms.
