Summary:In this paper, thermodynamic mole fractions (ideal mixing activities) are formulated with ideal mixing on all sites, representing a disordered solution, and non-ideality is formulated involving enthalpic interactions involving all sites, which may be taken to account at least partially for any ordering in the structure; hornblende is used as an example. In this framework, it is shown how a-x relationships may be simplified. Moreover, the logic developed can apply to other formulations, including those in which order parameters are involved explicitly. [J.A.Z.]
