|TOC:||Table of contents|
It is the aim of the present book to make the reader familiar with the application of a model developed by Andries Miedema which opened completely new perspectives in materials science. For example, a result that was obtained by a one-month run on a Cray 1 supercomputer turned out to be only a few kilo Joules different from the outcome by Miedema’s model, obtained within a few minutes by use of a pocket calculator.
After studying the text, the reader should be able, with the aid of a number of tables from Miedema’s papers and his book, given in the appendix, to make estimates of desired quantities and maybe even to extend the model to problems that, so far, were not handled by others
