Ross melting rule[edit]

The Ross melting rule states (Eq. 4 [4]):

A = \frac{1}{2} NE(0) - Nk_BT \ln \upsilon  - Nk_BT \ln \upsilon_f^*

where A is the Helmholtz energy function, N is the number of cells, E(0) is the potential at the centre of the cell, k_B is the Boltzmann constant, T is the temperature, \upsilon is the volume of the cell, and \upsilon_f^* is the dimensionless reduced volume in configuration space.
