Using simulation techniques that we discussed in a previous work, we create random dense hard-sphere systems above the freezing point (i.e., along the metastable branch) and measure key quantities that characterize the structure for such high densities. These include certain statistics of the void space, nearest-neighbor statistics, and the mean coordination number. Our numerical results turn out to be generally in very good agreement with recent theoretical predictions.
