Experimental studies of phase equilibria at elevated temperatures and pressures have had a tremendous impact on deciphering petrogenetic processes during the last three decades. It was soon realized, however, that complete understanding of rock-forming processes can hardly be achieved by empirical experiments alone. As a result, thermodynamic analysis of phase equilibria emerged as a promising field of research.
