摘要

Investigating thermodynamic properties of a model for liquid Ga, we have extended the application of the hard-sphere (HS) perturbation theory to an interatomic pair potential that possesses a soft repulsive core and a long-range oscillatory part. The model is interesting for displaying a discontinuous jump on the main-peak position of the radial distribution function at some critical density. At densities less than this critical value, the effective HS diameter of the model, estimated by the variational HS perturbation theory, has a substantial reduction with increasing density. Thus, the density dependence of the packing fraction of the HS reference fluid has an anomalous behavior, with a negative slope, within a density region below the critical density. By adding a correction term originally proposed by Mon to remedy the inherent deficiency of the HS perturbation theory, the extended Mansoori-Canfield/Rasaiah-Stell theory [J. Chem. Phys. 120, 4844 (2004)] very accurately predicts the Helmholtz free energy and entropy of the model, including an excess entropy anomaly. Almost occurring in the same density region, the excess entropy anomaly is found to be associated with the anomalous packing faction of the HS fluid.
