21) The Petrarchan lover's four perturbations of the mind are further exacerbated by his deep awareness of time's fugacity, which he sees at work in his body, as he watches his hair turn white, as well as in his soul, as he commiserates with himself because time robs him of his own cupidity's aspirations, while weighing him down with increased fear and sadness.
Buddington and Lindsley (1964) have shown that hematite will not reduce to magnetite at 500[degrees] C unless the oxygen fugacity is less than [10.

We will explore the influences of pressure, temperature, oxygen fugacity and key bulk compositional variables such as Na2O/CO2 on very deep subduction of carbonate and on the volumes and compositions, and fates of carbonated partial melts.
The interaction of long-chain polymers with an impenetrable surface can be modelled by restricting SAWs to a half-space, and associating another fugacity y with vertices (or edges) in the boundary of the half-space which are visited by a walk.

After definition of the EoS (PC-SAFT or SL) and assuming that polymers are monodisperse with a molecular weight of 100,000 g/mol, conventional relationships can be applied to the fugacity calculations in the liquid-fluid equilibria (LFE):
The compositions of coexisting magnetite and ilmenite can be used to estimate liquidus temperatures and oxygen fugacity (Andersen and Lindsley, 1988) of magmas, although subsolidus exsolution produces intergrowths that complicate application of the geothermometer/oxygen barometer in slowly cooled, coarse-grained rocks.
Detailed mineral compositions (EMPA) are employed to evaluate P, T, and fugacity conditions for magmatic-hydrothermal activity related to the granodiorite, based on various geothermobarometric calibrations.
