20 20 Introduction Theoretical Simulation Results general time dependent theory still to be developed Literature: Treatment of changes in confined systems does not reflect realistic processes  general time dependent theory for confined systems is still to be developed Thank you critical remarks welcome ! Langevin(-like) equation no underlying realistic transport process  no realistic trajectory time needed for transport of matter is disregarded Grand Canonical Monte Carlo (GC MC) criterion for acceptance of step is energy time needed for transport of matter is disregarded  systematic search for suitable fluctuations or combinations thereof

21 21 A referee report from ADSORPTION, Springer, December 2012 Reviewer #1: The author suggests an alternative thermodynamic language to treat the adsorption hysteresis based on the concept of the curves of states (COS)instead of the isotherms defined in a proper statistico-mechanical ensemble. This reviewer is skeptical that the suggested approach provides for a new knowledge about the hysteresis phenomena. There is an extensive body of papers and reviews on thermodynamics and dynamics of adsorption hysteresis, and the consensus in adsorption community is that the hysteresis is related to the long-living metastable states and high energy barriers between the metastable and stable states, see e.g. most recent review of P.Monson and D.D.Do and co-authors. The introduction of the COS concept, which is in conflict with the well-established thermodynamics, may mislead students and beginning researchers, who are not knowledgeable in this field.

40 40 Adsorption Hysteresis in Porous Material Quotations from literature: 1 D.Wallacher et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 92, (2004) in the experimental system the metastable states just do not have time enough to relax... 1 Metastable states appear to be the most important aspect. 1...a failure of the system to equilibrate. 2 This explains why hysteresis, although representing a departure from equilibrium, is so reproducible in experiment. 2 2 R.Valiullin et al., Nature Letters, 443 (2006) 965-8

For clarity, the conventional isotherms are omitted, but can be easily reconstructed with the aid of the COS.
