Ordering in charged rod fluids

J. M. Deutsch, N. D. Goldenfeld

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The statistical mechanics of a dense fluid of charged rods is considered, and the corresponding phase diagram is calculated, using a coordinate transformation. A first-order isotropic-nematic phase transition is found, as suggested by an experiment of A.A. Brian et al. (1981).
