Phase transitions between these shapes were studied, and it is known that the phase transition from U(5) to O(6) is second order, while any other transition within the Casten triangle from a spherical to a deformed shape is first order [5-15].

If detected, such signatures would yield invaluable insight into the types of phase transitions that occurred when the Universe was a fraction of a second old, with drastic implications for particle physics.
The papers have been organized into sections on displacive transformations; diffusional transformations; transition by interface migration; order and disorder transitions; phase transition and size effect; driven systems and phase transformations; phase transformations during industrial processing; amorphous alloys, quasicrystals, and other complex phases; advances in theory and modeling of phase transitions; and advances in experimental techniques.
The sixth order energy (2) in s is sufficient to provide a description of all possible phase transitions between one undeformed austenitic phase and two martensitic variants of opposite shear (in 3D the potential would admit 24 variants for the martensite).
Equation (11) is nothing else but the kinetic relation for the phase transition front propagation.
In 2002, for instance, Couzin and his team showed that a few simple rules for fish interactions yielded phase transitions between swarming behaviors.
Further, numerous observations suggest the onset of a rapid phase transition between the familiar Holocene climatic mode and some future quasi-stable steady state.
In recent times, rheological techniques have been proposed as an alternative method to characterize the microstructural changes taking place during the phase transition stages of thermoplastic polymers.
