A recent contention by Rosinberg et al. [J. Chem. Phys. 100, 5172 (1994)] that the Replica Ornstein–Zernicke equations are limited to host matrices arising from a thermal quench is disputed. A clarification of the meaning of the required direct correlation functions of the matrix is provided. © 1995 American Institute of Physics.

    A new and analytical thermodynamic model for simple fluids with an intermolecular pair potential consisting of a hard-sphere core and an attractive Yukawa tail is presented. The model yields simple analytic expressions for all thermodynamic properties of the fluid system. The self-consistent...

    Two methods of predicting the wall–cavity concentration profiles nwi(z) for hard-sphere mixtures at a hard wall are investigated. The first, which is an extension of the procedure for the pure fluid derived in part II of this series, calculates nwi(z) by means of thermodynamic properties...
