Abstract

We present the results of Monte Carlo simulations of hard spheroids of revolution of different elongations. Both prolate and oblate shapes are examined. A systematic study of the bridge function b(1,2), and direct comparison with the indirect correlation function γ(1,2)=h(1,2)−c(1,2) at densities spanning the isotropic fluid range, allow us to evaluate the accuracy of various proposed closure relations for integral equations.
