Surface tension of small grains and droplets makes them stable only at a much lower temperature than in bulk. This makes spontaneous nucleation unfavorable in many cases. Kinetic approaches are delicate in that one can easily generate models that do not agree with thermodynamics in the large N limit. Here it is shown that thermodynamics itself dictates a kind of temperature suppression inside each small cluster in any gas-cluster mixture. This gives a different perspective on the "translation…
