The puzzle of the γ→α and other phase transitions in cerium

c Institute for High Pressure Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Troitsk, Moscow, Russian Federation

We discuss recent research on phase transitions in cerium under pressure, including new experiments on the γ→α transition, which indicate that it is a hidden structural phase transition. We also discuss some models of relevance to the field, both theoretical and computational.
