8. Quaternary and Other Systems

It is not possible to represent more than three components on a phase diagram and therefore quaternary and higher systems cannot be simply dealt with. No general rules can be given here, and each system will have to be studied separately. It is hoped however that the principles stated here will be helpful, but they cannot be more than that.
