Figures

Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

Cluster diagrams in the density expansion of the singlet density, Eq. (18) . The first row shows diagrams in () and (), respectively. The second row shows diagrams in (). The remainder of the rows show diagrams in (), which consists of 58 distinct clusters. Open and filled circles represent the root point and field points, respectively, with weight (), which for the hard-sphere/hard-wall system precludes overlap with the wall. The black and shaded squares represent field points with respective weights () − 1 (requires overlap with the wall) and (requires one or more wall overlaps among the points with this shading). ‡ denotes that shaded squares represent ( − 1)( − 1) not ( − 1). Points are joined by Mayer -bonds.

FIG. 2.

A comparison of cluster diagrams with different field points. (a) Homogeneous , (b) inhomogeneous (r), (c) inhomogeneous ().

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

A schematic section of hard-spherical particles near a wall.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

A schematic example for the integral range of length. Shading of points has the same meaning as in Figure 2 .

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

The phase space schematic of appropriate intermediate system: (a) direct-sampling and (b) umbrella and overlap-sampling. The arrows indicate perturbing from one system to another.

Image of FIG. 6.
FIG. 6.

The second- to seventh-order coefficients of the excess singlet density in a series in powers of activity.

Image of FIG. 7.
FIG. 7.

Et1/2 presents the difficulty of calculation for each coefficient, () and (). Curves proceed in sequence from = 2 to 7 as indicated on plot.

Image of FIG. 8.
FIG. 8.

(a) and (b) The second- to seventh-order coefficients of the density distribution when expressed as a series in powers of the bulk density.

Image of FIG. 9.
FIG. 9.

(a) and (b) The second- to seventh-order coefficients, (), of density distribution when expressed as a series in powers of the bulk density.

FIG. 10.

Et1/2 presents effort needed for each coefficient, (). Curves proceed in sequence from () to () as indicated on plot.

Image of FIG. 11.
FIG. 11.

(a) and (b) Comparison of () and () series of the density distribution for hard-spheres near a hard wall. The system is in equilibrium with a bulk hard-sphere fluid of .

Image of FIG. 12.
FIG. 12.

Same as Fig. 10 , but expanding on () by adding which is a product of ().

Image of FIG. 13.
FIG. 13.

Plots of density distribution for hard-spheres near a hard wall. The open squares correspond to MC data and the curves labeled 2, 3, 4, etc., correspond to truncated virial expansions, truncated after () (black), () (red), () (blue), () (cyan), () (magenta), and () (gold) terms, respectively. The system is in equilibrium with a bulk hard-sphere fluid of density of (a) = 0.206, (b) = 0.296, (c) = 0.397, (d) = 0.498, (e) = 0.608, (f) = 0.699. Dashed-dotted lines are from lower-order series, and solid lines from highest-order plotted in each case. Inset figures indicate the difference obtained upon subtracting each truncated virial series from MC data.

Image of FIG. 14.
FIG. 14.

Residual surface tension at a hard-sphere/hard-wall interface for different truncated series. Curves proceed in sequence from to as indicated on plot. Activity expansion at 7th order is plotted as a function of activity, α (top axis). The error bars in MC data are smaller than the symbol size.

Image of FIG. 15.
FIG. 15.

The exponential approximants, [/0], are compared against the surface virial expansion truncated at and MC simulation data. The error bars in MC data are smaller than the symbol size.

Image of FIG. 16.
FIG. 16.

The excess adsorption of a hard-sphere fluid at a planar hard wall as a function of the bulk density. The curves represent the virial results for different truncated series proceed in sequence from to as indicated on plot, while squares denote MC data. The error bars in MC data are smaller than the symbol size.
