Monte Carlo simulations have been performed for the linear tangent hard sphere model. The models considered in this work consisted of m=3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 monomer units. For the models m=3 and m=4 we find an isotropic fluid and an ordered solid. For the m=5 model we find the sequence of phases isotropic–nematic–smectic A on compression, and the sequence solid–smectic A–isotropic on expansion. We suggest that the nematic phase for this model is meta stable. For the model m=6 we observe the phase… CONTINUE READING
