3 Particular Distributions 39 separate system. Henceforward we shall deal exclusively with con gurational space and, accordingly, omit the index `c'. Again, although the index `' in symbols like Z , F , Fc is useful in general theory, it will be omitted in particular cases where the value of is well understood. 3 Particular Distributions As remarked above, the canonical distribution is the case = 0 of the general theory in Sect. 2. We now consider several other particular cases which are useful in practice.

92 As an alternative to the term `degrees of freedom' we can say that Fn; p is the dimension of the region of coexistence of the p phases. 92 is better known in the form of the Gibbs phase rule which applies to an isotropic system with components. Apart from T , the elds in this case are 1 ; 2 ; : : : ; and ,P . 93 For two coexisting one-component phases D1; 2 = 1 in agreement with the result obtained above for liquid vapour equilibrium. Since D; p 0 we conclude that the largest number of phases of a component system which can coexist is + 2.

98. 99 that dT=dx = 0. Hence, in the x; T plane, the conjugate phase curves touch, with a common horizontal tangent at the azeotropic point. Fig. 7 shows positive azeotropy; for negative azeotropy the touching curves have minima at the azeotropic point. Azeotropic points in the plane 1 = ,P = constant form a curve in the 1 ; 2 ; T or 1 ; x; T space, and hence, azeotropic behaviour, similar to that discussed above, occurs in T = constant planes. The di erence between an azeotropic point and a critical point for phase separation should be noted.
