Abstract

The two-fluid critical mixing point in He3 - He4 differs from ordinary critical points in that it occurs at the intersection of three lines of critical points, in a suitable variable space. A free-energy function is proposed which removes certain discrepancies between classical (Landau) theory and experimental thermodynamic measurements. Certain solid-state transitions (e.g., the metamagnetic-antiferromagnetic transition in FeCl2) are thermodynamic analogs of critical mixing in He3 - He4.
