We obtain the exact equation for a correction to the Ornstein-Zernike (OZ) equation based on the assumption of the uniqueness of thermodynamical functions. We show that this equation is reduced to a differential equation with one arbitrary parameter for the hard sphere model. The compressibility factor within narrow limits of this parameter variation can either coincide with one of the formulas obtained on the basis of analytical solutions of the OZ equation or assume all intermediate values lying in a corridor between these solutions. In particular, we find the value of this parameter when the thermodynamically consistent compressibility factor corresponds to the Carnahan-Stirling formula.

    We consider the asymptotic decay of structural correlations in pure fluids, fluid mixtures, and fluids subject to various types of inhomogeneity. For short ranged potentials, both the form and the amplitude of the longest range decay are determined by leading order poles in the complex Fourier...
