We have studied the distribution of the vacancy clusters specially for different types of divacancies in the body centred cubic (BCC) crystal structure using Markov chain time dependent theory. Some conclusions have been made for these distributions. Also we have studied the topology of these point defects. Some characteristics of the topology have been introduced for clusters. Also the decorated topology of clusters of 2, 3, 5, and 6 points have been studied in detail. It was concluded that topological symmetries are helpful in studying the decoration of these clusters. However for this it was assumed that during the decoration process the nature of the links remains the same. In the last chapter we have presented the conclusions for the results in this thesis and some suggestions for the future related research.
