The correlation entropy as a functional of radial distribution function $g(r)$ (or the total correlation function $h(r)=g(r)-1$) in classical fluids has been obtained from the second Legendre transform of the grand potential. We focus on the correlation entropy difference between the two typical functionals in the mean spherical approximation (MSA) and the hypernetted chain (HNC) approximation. While the entropy functional difference between these approximations is of a simple form, the… Expand
