Equilibrium theory of the hard sphere fluid and glasses in the metastable regime up to jamming. II. Structure and application to hopping dynamics.

Building on the equation-of-state theory of Paper I, we construct a new thermodynamically consistent integral equation theory for the equilibrium pair structure of 3-dimensional monodisperse hard spheres applicable up to the jamming transition. The approach is built on a two Yukawa generalized mean spherical approximation closure for the direct correlation… CONTINUE READING
