We investigate the spatial structure of dense square-shoulder fluids. To this end we derive analytical perturbative solutions of the Ornstein-Zernike equation in the low-and high-temperature limits as expansions around the known hard sphere solutions. We then discuss the suitability of perturbative approaches in relation to the Ornstein-Zernike equation.PACS numbers:
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
