First order phase transitions are described in terms of the microcanonical and canonical ensemble, with special attention to finite size effects. Difficulties in interpreting a " caloric curve " are discussed. A robust parameter indicating phase coexistence (univariance) or single phase (bivariance) is extracted for charge distributions. 1 Phase transitions, phase coexistence, and charge distributions Since the early studies of complex fragment emission at intermediate energies , a " liquid… CONTINUE READING
