A computer program, HALTAFALL, is described which calculates the equilibrium concentrations of the species in mixtures of any number of components, which can form any number of complexes and solid phases, provided concentrations (or partial pressures) can be used in the equilibrium calculations. Of course, the equilibrium constants must be known and enough data be given about the gross composition. Some applications are indicated. The flexible input rules make it applicable to a variety of problems. From the input information, the program itself devises an efficient plan for solving the simultaneous equations. The program also provides an efficient means of finding out which of many possible solid phases can actually appear in a certain equilibrium mixture.
