This can be the 3rd quantity of a three-volume set of reports dedicated to the interrelationships, similarities, modifications and contrasts of the lanthanide and actinide sequence of components. It contains 5 chapters at the comparative physics and thermodynamics of the lanthanide and actinide fabrics. the 1st chapters are all for neutron scattering reviews, whereas the subsequent are taken with actual estate reviews concerning digital, thermal and magnetic behaviors. the ultimate bankruptcy covers the thermodynamic homes of metal systems.

The first bankruptcy compares the inelastic neutron scattering behaviours of the lanthanides and actinides. the subsequent bankruptcy concentrates on neutron scattering via heavy fermion unmarried cyrstal fabrics, together with steel and semiconducting antiferromagnets and approximately insulating paramagnets. bankruptcy 3, essentially the most large and accomplished one within the complete sequence, studies intermediate valence and heavy fermions in a large choice of lanthanide and actinide compounds, starting from steel to insulating fabrics. bankruptcy 5 makes a speciality of matters at the excessive strain behaviors of anomalous cerium, ytterbium and uranium compounds. the ultimate bankruptcy is an intensive assessment of the thermodynamic houses of lanthanide and actinide metal structures.

O oog [11o] -q"o,o g [1oo] (From Rossat-Mignod et al. ) parameter "fits" must be regarded as phenomenological, as the authors themselves admit. A basic difficulty is that the magnetic interactions appear to have planar rather than the cubic symmetry o f the crystal structure. This is exactly the problem that arises in explaining the magnetic critical effects, so that there is a close relationship between these two phenomena, as we would expect. This planar symmetry is a signature o f the hybridization process, as discussed by Wills and Cooper (1987), and we shall find it even stronger in the uranium compounds.

The hatched areas around zero energy transfer represent the elastic nuclear scattering with experimental energy resolution, and the hatched areas around 14 meV represent the phonon contribution to the scattering response.

On the other hand, when the 4f count is close to the 41`5 (Sm 3+) or to the 4_t`7 configuration (Eu2+) the 7F0 ground state of the 4f6configuration is broadened and the 7F 0 ___+7 F1 intermultiplet transition is no longer observable.
