The coexistence pressure of two phases is a well-defined point at fixed temperature. In experiment, however, due to nonhydrostatic stresses and a stress-dependent potential energy barrier, different measurements yield different ranges of pressure with a hysteresis. Accounting for these effects, we propose an inequality for comparison of the theoretical… CONTINUE READING
