A classical system enclosed in a finite volume and affected by external forces is treated in a general way. The main results are partly applicable to solids as well as to fluids. Exact integral equations are found for the one- and two-particle distribution frnctions. Some thermodynamic functions are expressed in terms of these distribution functions. It is shown that there exist variational principles, which require that the grand partition function is at a maximum with respect to the… Expand
