Particle-hole technique in classical statistical mechanics

M. W. Liao, J. K. Percus

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The use of hole and particle distributions on equal footing is shown to give rise to the PY approximation, as well as to associated rigorous inequalities. The approximation is extended to third- and higher-order distributions.
