  • This paper describes a new statistical approach to the theory of multicomponent systems. A ‘conformal solution’ is defined as one satisfying the following conditions: (i) The mutual potential energy of a molecule of species Lr and one of species Ls at a distance ρ is given by the expression urs(ρ) = frs u00(grsρ), where u00 is the mutual potential energy of two molecules of some reference species L0 at a distance ρ, and frs and grs are constants depending only on the chemical nature of Lr and… CONTINUE READING
