    • Abstract


      A few types of phase transitions in solids of interest to the author are discussed after a brief presentation of the general features of phase transitions. The different systems discussed include low-dimensional solids, polytypes, organic solids, plastic crystals, glasses and silver selenide. Spin-state transitions and dipole glasses are also briefly examined.
