An improved method for obtaining solutions to integral
equations for the two-particle distribution functions of simple
fluids has been developed. The method has been applied to the
Percus Yevick and Hypernetted Chain approximations, particularly
in the region of the liquid-vapour co-existence curve.
It is shown that the Percus Yevick approximation predicts
a phase change in a Lennard-Jones fluid. The predicted
critical density is not particularly sensitive to the range of
the attractive...[Show more]
