The susceptibility of liquid3He near 1 K

  • 17 Accesses

Abstract

The susceptibility of an interacting system of fermions is calculated by expanding the partition function in a way similar to the semiclassical expansion. The interactions enter through the radial distribution functiong(q) and an effective temperatureT eff in the momentum distribution function. By making simple approximations forg(q), it is shown that the present theory contains most other high-temperature theories as special limiting cases. When the available experimental data for the liquid structure function, which is related to the Fourier transform ofg(q), are used and a plausible choice forT eff is made, reasonable agreement is obtained with the experimental results for the susceptibility of liquid3He near 1 K.
