    Structural covariance in the hard sphere fluid


    Carter, BM, Turci, F, Ronceray, P & Royall, CP, 2018, ‘Structural covariance in the hard sphere fluid’. Journal of Chemical Physics, vol 148.


    We study the joint variability of structural information in a hard sphere fluid biased to avoid crystallisation and form five-fold symmetric geometric motifs. We show that the structural covariance matrix approach, originally proposed for on-lattice liquids [P. Ronceray and P. Harrowell, J. Stat. Mech.: Theory Exp. 2016(8), 084002], can be meaningfully employed to understand structural relationships between different motifs and can predict, within the linear-response regime, structural changes related to motifs distinct from that used to bias the system.
