    A self-similar problem, which has an exact analytical solution, is used as an example for analyzing possible states of the condensed phase of two-component materials under surface heating to temperatures in excess of the temperatures of phase transitions. It is demonstrated that the disruption...

    We consider theoretically the possibility of observing unusual quantum fluid behavior in liquid 3He and solutions of 3He in 4He systems confined to nanochannels. In the case of pure ballistic flow at very low temperature the conductance will be quantized in units of 2m2/h. We show that these...

    The paper presents the results of an experimental investigation of the change in the temperature at the interface between water and a thermocouple junction (of diameter 1 mm) in a droplet (initial radius 1.5-3 mm) in the process of heating and evaporation of the latter in an air stream (of...
