Presents a mean-field description of a system of polydisperse hard-spheres. Theory based on the postulate that excess statistical properties of a general polydisperse mixture are a function of the number, the mean diameter, surface area and volume of the constituent particles; Equivalence used to derive approximate expressions.

    We derive a mean-field model for a semiflexible chain using a functional integral approach. The resulting model satisfies the global constraint 〈u2(s)〉=1 rather than the hard constraint that u2(s)=1 for all s. The function u(s) is the tangent vector ∂r/∂s, where r(s)...

    The numerical solution of the recently formulated number-projected Hartree-Fock-Bogolyubov (HFB) equations is studied in an exactly solvable cranked-deformed shell-model Hamiltonian. It is found that the solution of these number-projected equations involves similar numerical effort as that of...

    There are a number of different ways of thinking about the intermolecular vibrations present in liquids. The approach suggested by instantaneous normal modes is a particularly interesting one, not just because of its connections with short-time dynamics, but because these modes can be analyzed...

    We apply the slave-boson approach of Kotliar and Ruckenstein to the two-band Hubbard model with an Ising like Hund's rule coupling and bands of different widths. On the mean-field level of this approach we investigate the Mott transition and observe both separate and joint transitions of the two...

    The two-site dynamical mean field theory (DMFT) is applied to the dynamic Hubbard model. This model takes into account a correction to the Coulomb interaction due to particle double occupancy by using an Ising-like degree of freedom to represent an associated boson field. At finite boson...

    We discuss the dynamics and thermodynamics of the Hamiltonian Mean Field model (HMF) which is a prototypical system with long-range interactions. The HMF model can be seen as the one Fourier component of a one-dimensional self-gravitating system. Interestingly, it exhibits many features of real...

    Loop formation between monomers in the interior of semiflexible chains describes elementary events in biomolecular folding and DNA bending. We calculate analytically the interior distance distribution function for semiflexible chains using a mean field approach. Using the potential of mean force...

    Mean-field theory is used to derive criteria for the adsorption of a weakly charged polyelectrolyte molecule from salt solution onto surfaces patterned with charge and topography. For flat surfaces patterned with periodic arrays of charged patches, the adsorbed layer thickness predicted using...
