When antiphase boundaries were present and the ordering occurred by a...

    In studies of adsorption from solutions, the potential of mean force between solute particles is a key quantity from which we may derive the thermodynamics of adsorption via the osmotic partition function. We consider the case of a polar solute in a polar solvent. The long-range part of the...
