An Algorithm for Determining Debye Temperatures.
MISSING :5 pages
As part of its thermodynamic investigations of mineral compounds, the Bureau of Mines has written an algorithm based on Newton's method for solving for the characteristic debye temperature of a compound, from heat capacity and temperature data. A listing of a Fortran IV program based on this algorithm, for calculating debye temperatures given heat capacities or for calculating heat capacities given debye temperatures, is available from the author upon request.
