Molecular fields and statistical field theory of fluids: Application to interface phenomena.

Using the integral transformation, the field-theoretical Hamiltonian of the statistical field theory of fluids is obtained along with the microscopic expressions for the coefficients of the Hamiltonian to derive an explicit analytical expression for the surface tension in terms of temperature, density, and parameters of the intermolecular potential.

Gas–liquid critical point in ionic fluids

Based on the method of collective variables, we develop the statistical field theory for the study of a simple charge-asymmetric 1:z primitive model (SPM). It is shown that the well-known

Field-theoretic simulations beyond δ-interactions: Overcoming the inverse potential problem in auxiliary field models.

This study outlines the inverse potential problem and presents an alternative approach on the basis of a saddle-point approximation, enabling the use of a richer set of pair interaction functions in field-theoretic models.

Self-consistent field theory of density correlations in classical fluids

More than half of a century has passed since the free energy of classical fluids defined by second Legendre transform was derived as a functional of density-density correlation function. It is now

On the equivalence of self-consistent equations for nonuniform liquids: a unified description of the various modifications

A variety of self-consistent (SC) equations have been proposed for non-uniform states of liquid particles under external fields, including adsorbed states at solid substrates and confined states in

The theoretical developments in the statistical field theory of salt solutions of zwitterionic and multipolar molecules, based on the Hubbard-Stratonovich integral transformation, are summarized and a new oscillating behavior of the electrostatic field potential of the point-like test ion at long distances is found.

A mesoscopic field theory of ionic systems versus a collective variable approach

We establish a link between the two functional approaches: a mesoscopic field theory developed recently by Ciach and Stell (2000 J. Mol. Liq. 87 253) for the study of ionic models and an exact

Mesoscopic theory for inhomogeneous mixtures

Mesoscopic density functional theory for inhomogeneous mixtures of spherical particles is developed in terms of mesoscopic volume fractions by a systematic coarse-graining procedure starting form

Multiscale modeling of polymer materials using field-theoretic methodologies: a survey about recent developments

Understanding the chemistry and physics of polymer systems challenges scientists from a wide spectrum of research areas, ranging from polymer science to molecular electronic structure theory. One of



New mean-field theories for the liquid–vapour transition of charged hard spheres

The phase behaviour of the primitive model of electrolytes is studied in the framework of the various mean-field approximations obtained recently by means of methods pertaining to statistical field

Sine-Gordon Theory for the Equation of State of Classical Hard-Core Coulomb Systems. III. Loopwise Expansion

We present an exact field theoretical representation of an ionic solution made of charged hard spheres. The action of the field theory is obtained by performing a Hubbard–Stratonovich transform of

Phase transitions of the second order : collective variables method

This book gives an original and up-to-date theory of the second order phase transitions based on the effective functional integral method. Unlike previous works, this theory is constructed ab initio,

Some applications of the Lambert W function to classical statistical mechanics

We apply the recently defined Lambert W function to some problems of classical statistical mechanics, i.e. the Tonks gas and a fluid of classical particles interacting via repulsive pair potentials.

A Collective Description of Electron Interactions. I. Magnetic Interactions

A new approach to the treatment of the interactions in a collection of electrons is developed, which we call the collective description. The collective description is based on the organized behavior
