In this paper, we present and discuss some of the theoretical procedures that have been established recently for binary and ternary alloy systems for the purposes of analyzing chemical diffusion data (interdiffusion and intrinsic diffusion) alone and chemical diffusion data in combination with tracer diffusion data. Emphasis is put on extracting information about diffusion mechanisms by way of tracer correlation factors/vacancy-wind factors. Examples are taken from the intrinsic diffusion, interdiffusion and tracer diffusion data in the Ag-Cd and Ag-Cd-Zn, Fe-Ni-Cr and Cu-Fe-Ni alloy systems.
