We study the structure of colloidal fluids with reference to colloid-polymer mixtures. We compare the one-component description of the Asakura-Oosawa (AO) idealization of colloid-polymer mixtures with the full two-component model. We also consider the Morse potential, a variable range interaction, for which the ground state clusters are known. Mapping the state points between these systems, we find that the pair structure of the full AO model is equally well described by the Morse potential and...[Show more]
