Dear all,
For the first-order phase transitions, the following criteria should be met:
Pressures of the two phases are equal, i.e.,
P_{eq} = - \frac{{d{E_1}}}{{d{V_1}}} = - \frac{{d{E_2}}}{{d{V_2}}}
In other words, the P_{eq} is gradient of common tangent of the two phases E-V
curves obtained from EOS fitting.
This is a mathematical problem, but for the plot of this common tangent, can
someone please give me some hints? What tools/softwares should I use for this
purpose? Thanks in advance.
Best regards.
Hongsheng Zhao
