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.
