The mechanism behind it is quite simple: atoms tend to be arranged in several crystallographical configurations having different symmetry groups: higher symmetrical one (referred to as the austenite phase, typically cubic) has higher thermal capacity while lower symmetrical one (called the martensite phase, typically tetragonal, orthorhombic, or monoclinic) has lower thermal capacity and may exist, by symmetry, in several variants (typically 3, 6, or 12, respectively).
