In the 1920s, Hume-Rothery helped to make the art of metallurgy into a science by the discovery of rules for the prediction of solubility in alloys. Their simplicity and generality made them become one of the most important rules in materials science. In the few decades after Hume-Rothery’s discovery, many researchers have tried to make “corrections” to H-R rules aiming to make them work better in general alloy systems. Those researches included explanations of the rules using quantum and electron theories and new combinations of the factors to give better mapping. In this paper, we review most of these contributions and introduce recent progress in solubility prediction using artificial neural networks
