    The thermodynamic criterion for detonability of a phase-transforming substance derived by Kuznetsov [Sov. Phys. JETP 22, 1047 (1966)] is shown to be an approximation to the more general criterion for detonability, namely, (∂P/∂λ)E,V>0, where E is internal energy, V is volume, and...

    It is shown that paraazoxyanisole has four solid-crystal forms. The heats and temperatures of melting and transition are related by the following five equations: Q[sub m](IV) = Q[sub m](II); Q[sub m](IV) = Q[sub m](I) + Q[sub m](III); T[sub m](IV) = T[sub m](III); T[sub tr](II-III) = T[sub...

    An exact expression is obtained for the partition function of a Gaussian chain of arbitrary length adsorbed on a plane with stretching force acting on the chain’s free end. It is found that the increase in the stretching force makes the macromolecule undergo an unusual phase transition...
