Describes two integral equation approaches to solve the structure and thermodynamics of mixtures of hard-spheres and homonuclear hard-dumbbells. Possibility of phase separation in an asymmetric mixture; Tendency of an equivalent mixture of hard-dumbbells and large hard-spheres to phase separate as far as the integral equation results are concerned.

    We present an integral equation approach to the structural and thermodynamic properties of a fluid of partially aligned dipolar hard spheres. To relate the two-particle correlation functions to the anisotropic singlet density, we mainly employ the Lovett-Mou-Buff-Wertheim equation. We show that,...
