Recently, Cengiz and Albayrak studied the sound attenuation phenomena for a finite crystal field BEG model on the Bethe lattice in terms of the recursion relations by using the Onsager theory [40].
Accordingly, the larger dielectric constant values more than 20, the Onsager length becomes of the order of the nanostructure size, and no further quenching is observed.
In the Wyodak Anderson coalbed (Onsager and Cox, 2000; Cox and Onsager, 2002) of Fort Union Formation in the Powder River Basin, U.S., the 15# coalbed in Shouyang-Yangquan of the Qinshui Basin, China, and other coal measure strata (Meng 2010), water bodies exist in the upper or lower coalbed, in addition to the coalbed cleat system.

Based on suspensions theory [55], the transitions from dilute to semidilute for rod-like particles with a diameter of d and a length of L occurs at a volume fraction of [[phi].sub.0] [approximately equal to] 30([pi][d.sup.2]/4[L.sup.2]), from semidilute to concentrated at [[phi].sub.1] [approximately equal to] [pi]d/4L, and from concentrated to nematic based on Onsager's theory [55] at [[phi].sub.2] [approximately equal to] 3.3d/L.
In the United States, Canada, and Europe, wireworms (Coleoptera: Elateridae) are important pests of vegetables, small grains, and potatoes (Onsager, 1975; Toba, 1981; Toba and Campbell, 1992; Horton and Landolt, 2001, 2002; Crozier et al., 2003), and in Alaska, their damage to potato was noted as early as 1949 (Chamberlin, 1949) as well as more recently (Dearborn, 1983).
