Course description
 The casting or crystal growth are important processings of the solidification from molten state, therefore, the understanding of molten state is important for the material processings. In this lecture, the thermodynamics and statistical physics of molten state is introduced.
Purpose of class
The importance of thermodynamics of molten matters will be understood. Students of this lecture can calculate the structure and properties of molten state of matters in typical cases.
Goals and objectives
  1. Review the properties of liquid metals, colloidal liquid, ionic liquid.
  2. Overlook thermodynamics of condensed matters.
  3. Get the topics of molten materials of the latest research
