The onsager equation for corpora

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

8 Scopus citations


We consider extensions of excluded volume interactions for complex corpora that generalize simple rod-like particles. The Onsager equation can be defined for quite general configuration spaces, and the dimension reduction of the phase space in the limit of highly intense interaction can be shown. The formalism describes both freely articulated and interacting N-rods and the example of interacting 2-rods is given in detail.
