A binary Van-der-Waals solution is considered. Within the framework of the Gibbs and Van-der-Waals capillary theories under the conditions of constancy of the temperature and the composition the size dependences of surface tension σ(R) are calculated for critical nuclei of liquid and vapor. The phenomenon of "closure" of size dependences σ(R) and the presence anomalously of high maximums on them are established.

    We predict the free energy of van der Waals clusters (Fn) in the surface-melted temperature regime. These free energies are used to predict the bulk chemical potential, surface tension, Tolman length, and vapor pressure of noble gas crystals. Together, these estimates allow us to make definitive...
