Thermodynamic and structural properties of strongly coupled plasma mixtures from the perturbative HNC-equation

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Recently, we developed the perturbative hypernetted-chain (PHNC) integral equation which can predict reliable thermodynamic and structural data for a system of particles interacting with either short range or long range (Coulomb) potential. The present work extends this earlier work to mixtures. This is done by employing a reference potential which is designed to satisfy a thermodynamic consistency on the isothermal compressibility as described in the next section. We test the present theory in Sec. III by applying it to plasma mixtures interacing with either an unscreened or a screened Coulomb potential. We made comparisons of results from the present theory ... continued below

Description

Recently, we developed the perturbative hypernetted-chain (PHNC) integral equation which can predict reliable thermodynamic and structural data for a system of particles interacting with either short range or long range (Coulomb) potential. The present work extends this earlier work to mixtures. This is done by employing a reference potential which is designed to satisfy a thermodynamic consistency on the isothermal compressibility as described in the next section. We test the present theory in Sec. III by applying it to plasma mixtures interacing with either an unscreened or a screened Coulomb potential. We made comparisons of results from the present theory with those from the best available theory, i.e., Rosenfeld`s density functional theory (DFT). The DFT was shown to give internal energy with three to five fignre accuracy compared to a wide range of Monte Carlo data. Meanwhile, small deviations of excess internal energy from the so-called ``liner mixing rule`` (LMR) are better predicted by a less sophiscated theory like the hypernetted- chain (HNC) equation. This rule relates thermodynamics of an unscreened mixture to those for individual components in a strongly coupled regime where the potential energy of a constituent particle is much larger than its kinetic energy. We also apply the present theory to a H{sub 2} + H mixture interacting with Morse potentials. For this sytem, comparison of thermodynamic properties and radial distribution functions from the present theory will be made with those from another successful theory of dense fluid, i.e., the HMSA equation of Zerah and Hansen.
