Our previously published virial expansion describing deviations from Clausius–Mossotti behavior in the dielectric constant of a hard-sphere fluid within the quadrupole approximation [Mol. Phys. 46, 715 (1982)] is shown to account well for recent simulation results.

    We report Monte Carlo calculations on a Stockmayer fluid ( μ*=1, T*=1, ρ*=0.8) using both Ewald sum (EW) and reaction field (RF) approaches. We investigate the dependence of dielectric constant on system size. This dependence is less marked for EW than for RF. However, for a given number...

The dielectric constant corresponding to these models was evaluated in two...
