Abstract : The principal accomplishments described are: (1) A new formulation for rate processes in solids which does not make the assumption of thermal equilibrium among saddle-point configurations. (2) The extension of this formulation to include the effect of quantum statistics. (3) Development of techniques for the computer simulation of thermal equilibrium characteristics in linear-chain models of crystals containing vacancies. (Author)
