Continuous phase transitions in EosFit

Continuous phase transitions in EosFit

Continuous phase transitions in minerals, such as the α–β transition in quartz, can give rise to very large non-linear variations in their volume and density with temperature and pressure. In Angel et al 2017 we present a simplified description...
