The statistical mechanics of the interfacial region is studied using the Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics simulation techniques.
The penetrable-sphere model of the liquid/vapour interface is simulated using the Monte Carlo method. The pressure equation of state is calculated in the one-phase region and compared to analytic virial expansions of the system. Density profiles of the gas/liquid surface in the two-phase region are calculated and are compared to profiles solved in the m...Expand abstract
