Heat capacity and entropy; systematic relations to lattice vibrations
Heat capacity and entropy; systematic relations to lattice vibrations (in Microscopic to macroscopic; atomic environments to mineral thermodynamics, Susan Werner Kieffer (editor) and Alexandra Navrotsky (editor))
Reviews in Mineralogy (1985) 14: 65-126
The structure and volume relations of crystals are examined to interpret macroscopic thermodynamic properties of minerals. This involves the theoretical concepts that relate the vibrational spectra of silicates and the systematic properties of the spectra. Sample problems are worked and presented.
