Abstract

"A one dimensional lattice fluid in which particles are allowed to assume only discrete positions is proposed. Particles are free to move from one lattice site to another interacting through a variety of potentials, including the Lennard-Jones type. The model allows the partition function to be evaluated as a discrete sum over the allowable configurations. Both the canonical ensemble and grand ensemble are treated by computer and a third, the pressure ensemble, is considered and shown to be useful in the theoretical treatment of lattice systems. The thermodynamic behavior of various systems is investigated in both the canonical and grand ensembles. Both ensembles reveal that low temperature behavior of a system is distinctly different than that observed at high temperatures although there is not exact agreement between the two results"--Abstract, page ii.
