** Next:** Equilibrium of Isolated System
** Up:** Multi-Phase Systems
** Previous:** Multi-Phase Systems

Up to now, we have dealt, almost exclusively, with systems consisting of a
single phase (i.e., a single, spatially homogeneous, state of aggregation).
In this chapter, we shall employ statistical thermodynamics to investigate the equilibria of multi-phase systems (e.g., ice and water).
Most of our analysis turns out to be independent of the microscopic details of such systems, and, therefore, leads to
fairly general results.
