Equations of State of Solids in Geophysics and Ceramic Science
With important applications for ceramic sciences and solid earth geophysics, this book will be welcomed by all those in these fields. It describes in detail equations of state, which are fundamental in studying the physics and chemistry of the Earth. These represent the functional relationship between thermodynamic variables (pressure, volume, temperature) for solids. Oxides and silicates, especially those with high density, are examined.
