The pair structure and the thermodynamics of isotropic fluids composed of hard particles of different shapes and concentrations are considered by a new approach which (i) unifies the diagramatic Percus–Yevick theory and the geometric scaled particle theory, and (ii) leads to analytic accurate approximations for the direct correlation functions and cavity distribution functions. The scaled‐particle interpolation idea of Reiss et al. is achieved diagramatically, approximating the full expansion… CONTINUE READING
