The theory of the pair-functional ensemble is developed to provide estimates of the pairing forces from experimental X-ray intensities. The statistical mechanics of the grand ensemble leads to a diagram expansion for the forces, in terms of the direct correlation function of the fluid ensemble combined with a series of small higher-order corrections.
