    Quadrupole shape phase transitions have been studied in the frame of the Bohr-Mottelson model for which a sextic oscillator potential in the β variable is considered, while the γ degree of freedom is frozen either to 0° or 30° . The corresponding solutions are called X(3)-Sextic...

    The effects of longitudinal quadrupole moments on the formation of liquid crystalline phases are studied by means of constant NPT Monte Carlo simulation methods. The popular Gay–Berne model mesogen is used as the reference fluid, which displays the phase sequences isotropic-smectic...

    In this paper we resolve a controversy related to the demixing transition in the nematic phase of binary hard rod mixtures. Previous analyses do not agree on the existence of a consolute point closing the nematic-nematic coexistence region. We definitely rule out the existence of this critical...

    We propose a new unified field-theoretic path integral treatment of liquid–gas transition occurring in simple neutral fluids and neutral monodisperse polymer solutions. Obtained theoretical results indicate that both systems belong to the same Ising-type universality class which is...

    Using mixed-field finite-size scaling simulations, we have investigated the liquid-vapor critical behavior of three-dimensional fluids with algebraically decaying attractive pair interactions, which vary like -1/r[sup 3+σ] with σ=3, 1, and 0.1. The finite-size scaling analysis was carried...

    We study the thermodynamics of a one-dimensional fluid with particles interacting via a hard-core pair potential with a deep narrow attractive well plus an infinitely weak and long-ranged attractive tail. The attractive well has a striking effect on the liquid–gas phase boundaries of the...

    A sequence of two phase transitions at 85.3 ± 0.6 K and 72.6 ± 0.4 K is observed in hexagonal Cs[sub 3]Sb[sub 2]I[sub 9]. The NQR spectra of [sup 127]I are analyzed, optical polarization studies are made, and the thermal properties, linear expansion coefficients, and stiffness constants...
