Title: Melting Points of Atomic and Homogeneous, Diatomic Molecular Solids Via the Four-Body Problem
Author: Greenspan, Donald
Abstract: For a regular tetrahedral arrangement of four identical atoms, the minimum velocity of one atom, required for that atom to pass through the plane of the other three, is used to define the melting point of any solid composed of such atoms. The formula which results is [see pdf for notation], in which h is Planck's constant. Computations and results are described for helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon and copper. The methodology is then extended to homogeneous, diatomic molecular solids and results are described for H2, D2, N2, 02, and C12.
