By Meyers R.A. (ed.)

9 years has handed because the 1992 moment variation of the encyclopedia used to be released. This thoroughly revised 3rd version, that's a college point compendium of chemistry, molecular biology, arithmetic, and engineering, is refreshed with quite a few articles approximately present learn in those fields. for instance, the recent variation has an elevated emphasis on details processing and biotechnology, reflecting the speedy progress of those parts. the ongoing Editor-in-Chief, Robert Meyers, and the Board ready a brand new topical define of actual technological know-how and know-how to outline entire insurance. part editors are both Nobel Laureates or editors of key journals of their fields. extra Board contributors representing the worldwide clinical neighborhood have been additionally recruited.

Both variations, δV (α) > 0 and δV (α) < 0, are possible and p (α) = p (β) (deformable phase boundary). 2. Variation δV (α) is impossible, δV (α) = 0, and p (α) > p (β) , p (α) = p (β) , or p (α) < p (β) (undeformable or rigid phase boundary). 3. Variation δV (α) is possible only in one direction, δV (α) ≥ 0 and p (α) ≤ p (β) (semideformable phase boundary).

I. HISTORY OF COMPUTATIONAL CHEMISTRY As early as 1929, only 3 years after Schr¨odinger’s formulation of the fundamental equation that bears his name, Dirac stated correctly, The underlying physical laws necessary for the mathematical theory of a large part of physics and the whole of chemistry are thus completely known, and the difficulty is only that the exact application of these laws leads to equations much too complicated to be soluble. Hence, the further development of quantum chemistry was aiming at approximate solutions of the Schr¨odinger equation by simplifying the required mathematical treatment.

3. Variation δV (α) is possible only in one direction, δV (α) ≥ 0 and p (α) ≤ p (β) (semideformable phase boundary). Similar considerations concerning sets B and C yield the conditions for heat-conducting (T (α) = T (β) ), nonconducting (T (α) > T (β) , T (α) = T (β) , or T (α) < T (β) ), and semi(β) conducting (T (α) ≥ T (β) ) and for permeable (µi(α) = µi ), (β) (β) (β) (α) (α) (α) impermeable (µi > µi , µi = µi , or µi < µi ), and (β) semipermeable (µi(α) ≥ µi ) phase boundaries.
