    A new approach for the determination of the work of critical cluster formation in the description of nucleation processes is developed. For an illustration, the method is applied here to phase formation processes in solid and liquid solutions. However, it is applicable quite generally and not...

    We show that the validity of the nucleation theorem transcends the phenomenon of nucleation and extends to all equilibrium systems containing local nonuniform density distributions stabilized by external fields, and that it remains valid down to the molecular level. This result is tested by the...

    Heterogeneous nucleation in solutions on planar solid surfaces is modeled taking into account changes of the state parameters of the critical clusters in dependence on supersaturation. The account of the variation of the state parameters of the cluster phase on nucleation is performed in the...
