Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Analytical solution of the proper integral-equations for interaction site fluids

Abstract

We apply the Wiener-Hopf factorization technique to the Chandler-Silbey-Ladanyi equations with the Percus-Yevick closure for a general fluid composed of hard-sphere interaction sites. We analytically solve these equations for symmetric n- atomic tangent hard-sphere molecules (n less than or equal to 4), and obtain closed analytical expressions for the equation of stare and other thermodynamic properties of the fluid.
