Gibbs ensemble simulations are used to calculate part of the phase diagram of the Lennard-Jones fluid. The phase diagram turned out to be very sensitive to the details of how the tail of the Lennard-Jones potential is taken into account in the simulations.

    Lattice models of complex fluids (micellar solutions, microemulsions, etc.) have been an effective tool for the study of both the internal structures of various complex phases and the corresponding phase diagrams. In some approaches, e.g., the random-mixing model of a microemulsion, the lattice...

    Density fluctuation is one of the fundamental parameters which determine the various physicochemical properties of supercritical fluids. When the contour map of density fluctuation is drawn on the phase diagram, there exists a ridge which separates the supercritical region in two. In order to...
