A general mathematical treatment for heat-flux differential scanning calorimetry is given. It combines equations derived for heat transfer in the calorimeter cell with an approach to the solidification of metal or alloy carried out in this type of instrument. The differences are discussed between temperature evolution, kinetics of latent heat and undercooling evolution within the sample, and temperature evolution, recorded signal and measured undercooling at the monitoring station.
