We present a new analytic fluid-phase equation of state (EOS) of binary nonadditive hard sphere mixtures having equal collision diameters (d11=d22=d) between like species, but having an unequal collision diameter (d12) between unlike species. For this purpose, we have generated EOS data by Monte Carlo simulations over a wide range of density, composition, and d12. The analytic EOS produces reliable results for d12≥d and d12=d.

    Precise understanding of strongly interacting fermions, from electrons in modern materials to nuclear matter, presents a major goal in modern physics. However, the theoretical description of interacting Fermi systems is usually plagued by the intricate quantum statistics at play. Here we present...
