Abstract

We show that the metric structures of the thermodynamic state space enables us to uniquely decide if two thermodynamic states belong to the same phase or not, even in the presence of a critical point. While the method cannot classify one state in itself into a definite phase, coherent regions can be identified in the state space. The construction is demonstrated on the van der Waals gas.
