From the structure of layer stacking of Lunijianlaite and its host and theory of nonequilibrium thermodynamics, a nonlinear
dynamical model named “Shenkuoator” has been presented under the condition of nonequilibrium. The numerical results have been
successfully used to explain the self-organized ordering phenomenon at two levels in the apparent single-crystal. Hence, the
latter has been confirmed as crystallization product of the supersaturated silicate solution, whose chemical composition is
between that of cookeite and pyrophyllite, under the conditions of nonequilibrium and nonlinearity.

    ABSTRACT: The crystallization mechanism of 2:1 type regular interstratified minerals is investigated in views of non-equilibrium thermodynamics. The structural chemistry of relative layers and their interstratified combinations is analyzed and six kinds of non-equilibrium chemical systems have been induced. The universal laws of chemical reactions which happened in the interface region of these non-equilibrium systems have been summarized. From these laws, two reaction systems crystallizing out Tosudite and Rectorite respectively have been recovered. The kinetic model of chemical reactions has been developed by means of the mass conservation law. The oscillatory solution showing regular interstratified features has also been obtained numerically. These results indicate that the difference in original chemical composition among systems can affect the chemical connotation of reactants, intermediate products and resultants, and the flow chart of chemical reaction, but cannot change their crystallization behavior of network-forming cations, bigger and smaller network-modifying cations during crystallization. Hence, their kinetic model reflecting the universal crystallization law of these cations is just the same. These systems will crystallize out regular interstratified minerals at suitable parameters, which always exist as domain with nanometer-sized in thickness and can be called the self-organized ordering structure.

    ABSTRACT: The vortex self-organization is investigated in this paper by four groups of numerical experiments within the framework of quasi-geographic model, and based on the experimental results two types of possible mechanisms for vortex self-organization are suggested. The meso-scale topography may enable separated vortices to merge into a larger scale vortex; and the interaction of meso-γ and meso-β scale systems may make separated vortices to self organize a typhoon-like vortex circulation.
