Contact values of pair distribution functions in colloidal hard disks by test-particle insertion

Abstract:

We apply Henderson’s method for measuring the cavity distribution function y(r) [J. Henderson, Mol. Phys. 48, 389 (1983)] to obtain the pair distribution function at contact, g(σ+). In contrast to the conventional distance-histogram method, no approximate extrapolation to contact is required. The resulting equation of state from experiments and simulations of hard disks agrees well with the scaled particle theory prediction up to high fluid packing fractions. We also provide the first experim...
