The effect of strain on the thermodynamics of the weakly first-order phase transition
The thermodynamics of two-phase coherent equilibrium is analysed in the case of a phase transition without change of composition. The elastic contribution to the Gibbs free energy associated with a
Jump kinetics on the Fibonacci quasilattice. Exactly solvable model of the layer growth and dislocation kinetics in quasicrystals
The jump kinetics on a quasiperiodic pinning potential is analyzed under small external force in a 1D Fibonacci quasilattice model. The model describes planar (layer) growth of stable quasicrystals
Electronic transport properties in amorphous and crystalline FeZr 2 examined via the density of states
An extensive study of ${\mathrm{FeZr}}_{2}$ was undertaken in order to gain insight into the amorphous structure of the glass and the metastable ``big-cube'' structure of the intermediate

Abstract The stability of smooth facets of a growing quasicrystal is analysed in the framework of a proposed semiphenomenological theory of layer-by-layer growth of quasicrystals from the melt. It is
Knight shifts of27Al and magnetic susceptibility of intermetallic compound NiAl with Fe additions
Atomic and electronic structures, magnetic properties of intermetallic compound NiAl with Fe additions (up to IO at .% for different types of alloying) were studied using NMR and magnetic
Elastic instability and phason disorder in icosahedral quasicrystals
Abstract Topological disorder in icosahedral quasicrystals is considered to be related to the phase transition of the elastic instability driven by phonon-like atomic displacements. Phason strain is
On the band-structure contribution to the stability of the icosahedral quasicrystals and Frank-Kasper phases in the non-transition metal alloys
The electronic contribution to the energy of icosahedral quasicrystals and related crystalline phases is discussed within a nearly-free-electron approximation. The Penrose approximant is used through
