Title: Density functional theory for the freezing of soft-core fluids
Authors: Archer, Andrew J.
Issue Date: 2005
Publisher: © The American Physical Society
Citation: ARCHER, A.J., 2005. Density functional theory for the freezing of soft-core fluids. Physical Review E - Statistical, Nonlinear, and Soft Matter Physics, 72 (5), DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevE.72.051501
Abstract: We present a simple density functional theory for the solid phases of systems of particles interacting via soft-core potentials. In particular, we apply the theory to particles interacting via repulsive point Yukawa and Gaussian pair potentials. We find qualitative agreement with the established phase diagrams for these systems. The theory is able to account for the bcc-fcc solid transitions of both systems and the re-entrant melting that the Gaussian system exhibits. © 2005 The American Physical Society.
