By Julio A. Gonzalo
This publication starts by means of introducing the powerful box strategy, the easiest method of part transitions. It offers an intuitive approximation to the physics of such various phenomena as liquid-vapor transitions, ferromagnetism, superconductivity, order-disorder in alloys, ferroelectricity, superfluidity and ferroelasticity. the relationship among the powerful box technique and Landau's concept is under pressure. the most assurance is dedicated to precise purposes of the potent box inspiration to ferroelectric platforms, either hydrogen bonded ferroelectrics, like these within the TGS relatives, and oxide ferroelectrics, like natural and combined perovskites.
