Recent experiments have found unusual behavior of the specific heat of 3He-4He mixtures within the regular porous material FSM-16. We analyze this problem with quantum density functional calculations of 4He, followed by ideal gas calculations of 3He in the resulting potential. The results are in semiquantitative agreement with the experimental data.
