Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We consider a non-uniform fluid in thermal equilibrium, described by free energy as a functional of particle density. The property of locality is defined, and both local chemical potential and local pressure tensor are constructed. The former satisfies energy balance, and the latter satisfies balance of forces.
