Computer simulation study of the global phase behavior of linear rigid LennardJones chain molecules : comparison with flexible models
(American Institute of Physics, 2004)The global phase behavior ~i.e., vaporliquid and fluidsolid equilibria! of rigid linear LennardJones ~LJ! chain molecules is studied. The phase diagrams for threecenter and fivecenter rigid model molecules are ... 
An accurate density functional theory for the vaporliquid interface of associating chain molecules based on the statistical associating fluid theory for potentials of variable range
(American Institute of Physics, 2004)A Helmholtz free energydensity functional is developed to describe the vaporliquid interface of associating chain molecules. The functional is based on the statistical associating fluid theory with attractive potentials ... 
Phase Diagram of the ProtonNeutron Interacting Boson Model
(American Physical Society, 2004)We study the phase diagram of the protonneutron interacting boson model with special emphasis on the phase transitions leading to triaxial phases. The existence of a new critical point between spherical and triaxial shapes ... 
Testarea simulation method for the direct determination of the interfacial tension of systems with continuous or discontinuous potentials
(American Institute of Physics, 2005)A novel testarea TA technique for the direct simulation of the interfacial tension of systems interacting through arbitrary intermolecular potentials is presented in this paper. The most commonly used method invokes ... 
Dipole moment and intensities in the electronic ground state of NH3: Bridging the gap between ab initio theory and spectroscopic experiment
(American Institute of Physics, 200503)We report here theoretical values for the transition moments of an extensive set of vibrational bands in the electronic ground state of 14NH3. For selected bands, we have further made detailed simulations of the rotational ... 
Finitesize scaling exponents in the interacting boson model
