THAT the same substance at the same temperature and pressure can exist in two very different states, as a liquid and as a gas, is a fact of the highest scientific importance, for it is only by the careful study of the difference between these two states, the conditions of the substance passing from one to the other, and the phenomena which occur at the surface which separates a liquid from its vapour, that we can expect to obtain a dynamical theory of liquids. A dynamical theory of “perfect…

From Gases and Liquids to Fluids: The Formation of New Concepts during the Development of Theories of Liquids
In this paper I will attempt to discuss certain methodological and historical issues related to the development of the theory of liquids. What are liquids really? Are they denser gases or diluted
Lattice-Boltzmann equations for describing segregation in non-ideal mixtures
Abstract In fluid mechanics, multicomponent fluid systems are generally treated either as homogeneous solutions or as completely immiscible parts of a multiphasic system. In immiscible systems, the

The density fluctuation theory can be made a molecular theory with the help of the modified free volume theory and the generic van der Waals equation of state and the confluence of these three theories makes it possible to calculate the transport coefficients of liquids by using the information on the equilibrium pair correlation function.
Thermodynamic cooperativity in glass-forming liquids: Indications and consequences
Abstract From our recent studies on crystal melting, a small-liquid-nucleus scenario is concluded. On this basis, a thermodynamic cooperativity is proposed to be the number of atoms in a liquid
The Maxwell–Boltzmann distribution
The Maxwell–Boltzmann distribution of molecular velocities and densities was derived first in the 1870s, but the derivations were difficult to follow and led to predictions of the heat capacities of

There is a compelling case that electrostatic explanations based on low-order multipole moments are very often counterfactual for nonbonded interactions at close range and should not be taken seriously in the absence of additional justification.
Revealing the atomistic mechanisms of strain glass transition in ferroelastics
Abstract As a new ferroelastic state, strain glass has attracted a lot of recent attentions and, most importantly, strain glass transitions (SGTs) could underpin many phenomena that have puzzled the
Local stress calculation in simulations of multicomponent systems
It is demonstrated that there are several sources for the slow convergence of the virial and Hardy local stresses to the bulk values using binary materials such as CaO, SiC and AlN and homogeneous strain.
Calculation of stress in atomistic simulation
Atomistic simulation is a useful method for studying material science phenomena. Examination of the state of a simulated material and the determination of its mechanical properties is accomplished by
H. A. Lorentz's contributions to kinetic gas theory
Summary This paper presents a summary and an analysis of the work of Hendrik Antoon Lorentz in the field of kinetic gas theory. It appears that as one of its characteristic traits this work shows a
