The recent Monte Carlo data of Degrève and Henderson for the density profiles of hard spheres near a large hard sphere are used to obtain direct correlation functions and bridge functions for this system both directly, using the Ornstein–Zernike relation and an approximation, due to Verlet, for the bridge function.

    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...

    Density functional calculations have been performed for ring isomers of sulfur with up to 18 atoms, and for chains with up to ten atoms. There are many isomers of both types, and the calculations predict the existence of new forms. Larger rings and chains are very flexible, with numerous local...
