High Pressure Science and Technology, Volume 2 contains the proceedings of the Association Internationale for Research and Advancement of High Pressure Science and Technology's VIIth International Conference held in Le Creusot, France, from July 30 to August 3, 1979. The papers explore a wide range of topics relating to high pressure science and technology, including molecular and chemical physics; melting and dense fluids; liquid crystals; molecular thermophysical properties; light scattering; intermolecular spectroscopy; high-temperature, high-pressure fluids; and properties of earth materials. This volume is comprised of 128 chapters and begins by calculating equations of state for static molecular and metallic hydrogen using the density functional method. The following chapters discuss the effect of density on the induced near infrared absorption spectrum of solid molecular hydrogen at 4.2 K; vibrational relaxation in highly compressed hydrogen; the dual melting curves of carbon tetrachloride; and the statistical theory of polymorphic phase transitions and crystallization. Alkane chain conformation as a function of pressure is also examined, along with high pressure thermodynamics and phase equilibria of fluid mixtures. The remaining sections focus on the lithosphere, athenosphere, and the behavior of dense materials. This book will be a valuable resource for materials scientists, metallurgists, physicists, chemists, and mechanical engineers.
