A density functional approximation is used to study the phase diagram of a hard sphere-attractive Yukawa system. We pay special attention to the dependence of the liquid phase stability on the range of the attractive tail. When this is sufficiently short-ranged, the liquid phase is not present in the phase diagram. The transition to the usual behavior with a phase diagram showing vapor, liquid, and solid phases takes place for a value of the range of the attractive part which is in reasonable agreement with recent Monte Carlo simulations and theoretical results. © 1994 American Institute of Physics.

    We report a study of hard-sphere mixtures of different sizes near a hard wall using both the Monte Carlo method and density functional theory. The theory is based on a semiempirical free-energy functional for an inhomogeneous hard-sphere mixture and is similar to that developed by Tarazona for...

    A model of polymer-amphiphile-solvent systems on a cubic lattice is used to investigate the phase diagram of such systems. The polymer is treated within the canonical ensemble (T,V,N) and the amphiphile and solvent are treated within the grand canonical ensemble (T,V,μ). Using a range of...
