Evaporation of a liquid
An evaporation mechanism involving fluctuations in the binding energy of atoms in a surface layer is discussed. An evaporation of clusters of several atoms becomes likely according to this mechanism. A qualitative analysis is supported by the results of a numerical simulation of a phase transition by a molecular-dynamics method.
