Renormalization group study of the melting of a two-dimensional system of collapsing hard disks

We consider the melting of a two-dimensional system of collapsing hard disks (a system with a hard-disk potential to which a repulsive step is added) for different values of the repulsive-step width.

The phase diagram and melting scenarios of two-dimensional Hertzian spheres

ABSTRACT We present computer simulations of a system of purely repulsive soft colloidal particles interacting via the Hertz potential and constrained to a two-dimensional plane. This potential

The influence of random pinning on the melting scenario of two-dimensional soft-disk systems

ABSTRACT We present the results of a computer simulation study of the melting scenario of two-dimensional soft-disk systems with potential , n=12 and n=1024, both in the presence of random pinning

Supercritical fluid of particles with a Yukawa potential: A new approximation for the direct correlation function and the Widom line

We propose an approximation of a direct correlation function corresponding to the linearization with respect to −βϕ(r) of a generalized mean spherical approximation for a hard-core multi-Yukawa

The Berezinskii–Kosterlitz–Thouless Transition and Melting Scenarios of Two-Dimensional Systems

The paper discusses current theories of melting of two-dimensional systems that are mainly based on the concepts of the Berezinskii–Kosterlitz–Thouless (BKT) theory of phase transitions in

Possible Scenarios of a Phase Transition from Isotropic Liquid to a Hexatic Phase in the Theory of Melting in Two-Dimensional Systems

A two-stage process consisting of two continuous Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless-type transitions with an intermediate anisotropic liquid, a hexatic phase, is a well-known scenario of melting in

The structure of a core-softened system in a narrow slit pore

ABSTRACT We have investigated the behaviour of a core-softened system in a narrow slit pore (the width of the pore is equal to three diameters of a particle). In the previous studies, it was shown

Molecular dynamics simulation of melting of 2D glassy monatomic system

The melting of two-dimensional (2D) glassy monatomic systems is studied using the molecular dynamics simulation with Lennard–Jones–Gauss interaction potential. The temperature dependence of various



Waterlike thermodynamic anomalies in a repulsive-shoulder potential system.

A computer-simulation study of the equilibrium phase diagram of a three-dimensional system of particles with a repulsive-shoulder potential shows that at certain values of the potential parameters the system exhibits the waterlike thermodynamic anomalies: a density anomaly and a diffusion anomaly.

Quasibinary amorphous phase in a three-dimensional system of particles with repulsive-shoulder interactions.

It is argued that the appearance of this amorphous low-temperature phase can be understood by viewing this one-component system as a quasibinary mixture.

Melting of Two-Dimensional Systems: Dependence of the Type of Transition on the Radius of the Potential

In the framework of the two-dimensional melting theory based on the density functional approach, we use a Monte Carlo computer simulation to study melting of a two-dimensional hard disk system with a

Effect of a potential softness on the solid-liquid transition in a two-dimensional core-softened potential system.

It is shown that the melting scenario drastically depends on the potential softness and changes with increasing the width of the smooth repulsive shoulder, which may be useful for the qualitative understanding of the behavior of water confined between two hydrophobic plates.

Unusual phase behavior of one-component systems with two-scale isotropic interactions

Several different forms of soft repulsion are considered, including a square shoulder, a linear ramp and a quasi-exponential tail, which may be the origin of unusual phase behaviors such as polyamorphism both in the equilibrium liquid phase and in the glassy state.

On the phase diagram of a ‘collapsing’ hard-sphere system

Abstract The principal phase diagram of a system with a repulsive step potential is built using the properties of a hard-sphere system as a starting point. The behaviour of the melting curve is

The freezing of hard spheres: The density functional theory revisited

We have analysed the recent theories of freezing and found that all results obtained hitherto are biased numerically by the early truncation of slowly converging series. As a result the local density

Melting Scenario of the Two-Dimensional Core-Softened System: First-Order or Continuous Transition?

We present a computer simulation study of the phase behavior of two-dimensional classical particles repelling each other through an isotropic core-softened potential. As in the analogous three

Superfragile glassy dynamics of a one-component system with isotropic potential: competition of diffusion and frustration.

The glass state is superfragile and it has high glass-forming ability and the glass transition temperature T(g) has a pronounced minimum at densities where the frustration is maximal.
