Abstract

The general n-point distribution function Hn characterizes the microstructure of disordered composite and porous media, liquids, and amorphous solids. In this Rapid Communication we obtain an exact analytical representation of Hn for inhomogeneous ensembles of d-dimensional spheres with a polydispersivity in size. Polydispersivity constitutes a fundamental aspect of the structure of random systems of particles.
