Through a series of articles in Nature, $^{(1-4)}$ Professor R.W. Cahn has repeatedly brought to focus the progress achieved and the problems to be solved in the basic but fascinating field of melting of solids. At a personal level, he has constantly encouraged us to work in this field. It is, therefore, a great honor to write this article in an issue dedicated to Professor Cahn. We shall concentrate on the melting of small particles and in particular, embedded small particles which have been studied less extensively. The issue which is of primary interest to the materials community in this research area and the subject matter of the present article is the observed asymmetry in the solidification and melting behavior of metals and alloys.
