Explaining why simple liquids are quasi-universal.


It has been known for a long time that many simple liquids have surprisingly similar structure as quantified, for example, by the radial distribution function. A much more recent realization is that the dynamics are also very similar for a number of systems with quite different pair potentials. Systems with such non-trivial similarities are generally… (More)
