comment How does gravitational lensing account for Einstein's Cross?
For future readers: the two saddles were on opposite sides of the origin and corresponding to two of the 4 light points making up Einstein's cross. The other two light points were at the sources.

comment What causes a eutectic point?
Beautiful diagrams! A tie line is an isotherm? The nearly horizontal red line, which is the common tangent between the fcc Ag(Ge) phase and the diamond Ge(Ag) phase, is not a traditional phase boundary. Rather it is a pseudomorph phase boundary. Is that a common feature of eutectics: the intersection of the free energy lines for a pseudomorphic phase boundary and its corresponding liquid?

@CuriousOne for smaller systems I found this: Parametric resonance in coupled scillators driven by colored noise.
