Noncompact crystalline solids in the square-well potential.


We reexamine the phase diagram of the square-well potential, using both theoretical and computer-simulation techniques, for not too short ranges of the potential. The phase diagram turns out to contain a variety of crystalline structures, both compact and, interestingly, also noncompact. The latter result from a large increase in negative energy when pairs… (More)
