Theory of Liquids
In the previous chapters of this book we have dealt mainly with solvable problems. The models could be solved either because they lack interactions (e.g., ideal gases) or because the interactions took place between a small number of particles (Chapter 3) or because the system itself was simple (Chapter 4). From this chapter through the rest of the book we shall be dealing with nonsolvable systems. Liquids, even the simplest ones consisting of hard-sphere particles, pose very difficult theoretical problems.
