Using molecular dynamic simulations, we study a system of particles interacting through a continuous core-softened potentials consisting of a hard core, a shoulder at closest distances, and an attractive well at further distance. We obtain the pressure-temperature phase diagram of this system for various depths of the tunable attractive well. Since this is a two length scale potential, density, diffusion, and structural anomalies are expected. We show that the effect of increasing the…

It is shown that the density, the diffusion, and the structural anomalies are present if particles move from the attractive scale to the shoulder scale with the increase of the temperature indicating that the anomalous behavior depends only in what happens up to the second coordination shell.

It is found that the region in the pressure-temperature phase diagram in which the anomalies are present increases if the slope between the core-softened scale and the attractive part of the potential decreases, and this anomalous behavior of the structure identifies the Widom line.

It is obtained that the diffusion coefficient increases with the increase of the nanotube radius for wide channels as expected for normal fluids, however, for narrow channels, the confinement shows an enhancement in the diffusion coefficients when the nanOTube radius decreases.

Analysis of the finite-size behavior of these maxima suggests that, rather than stemming from a metastable liquid-liquid critical point, as previously supposed, they are actually induced by the quasicontinuous nature of the two dimensional freezing transition.
