ABSTRACT
We construct a generalized nucleation potential for binary systems, which includes both the thermodynamic and kinetic effects. We show that the major nucleation flux passes through the saddle point (termed the genuine saddle point) of this generalized nucleation potential, even if it no longer passes through the thermodynamic saddle point. The genuine saddle point concept provides a convenient way to identify systems and conditions for which the ridge crossing phenomenon occurs.

    We present a fermion model that is, as we suggest, a natural 2D analogue of the Luttinger model. We derive this model as a partial continuum limit of a 2D spinless lattice fermion system with local interactions and away from half filling. In this derivation, we use certain approximations that we...

    We show that there is a limit lemma for enumeration reducibility to 0'[sube], analogous to the Shoenfield Limit Lemma in the Turing degrees, which relativises fur total enumeration degrees. Using this and 'good approximations' we prove a jump inversion result: for any set W with a good...

    Three variants of the regularized extraproximal method are proposed for finding equilibrium points in two-person saddle-point games. Their convergence is examined, and a regularizing operator is constructed.
