    • Dynamical heterogeneity in a glass-forming ideal gas. 

      Charbonneau, Patrick; Das, C; Frenkel, D (Phys Rev E Stat Nonlin Soft Matter Phys, 2008-07)
      We conduct a numerical study of the dynamical behavior of a system of three-dimensional "crosses," particles that consist of three mutually perpendicular line segments of length sigma rigidly joined at their midpoints. In ...
    • Gas-solid coexistence of adhesive spheres 

      Charbonneau, Patrick; Frenkel, D (Journal of Chemical Physics, 2007-05-28)
      In this note, the authors investigate whether the gas-liquid critical point can remain stable with respect to solidification for narrow attractive interactions down to the Baxter limit. Using a crude cell theory, the authors ...
    • Geometrical frustration: a study of four-dimensional hard spheres. 

      Charbonneau, Patrick; Frenkel, D; van Meel, JA (Phys Rev E Stat Nonlin Soft Matter Phys, 2009-03)
      The smallest maximum-kissing-number Voronoi polyhedron of three-dimensional (3D) Euclidean spheres is the icosahedron, and the tetrahedron is the smallest volume that can show up in Delaunay tessellation. No periodic lattice ...
    • Phase coexistence of cluster crystals: Beyond the gibbs phase rule 

      Mladek, BM; Charbonneau, Patrick; Frenkel, D (Physical Review Letters, 2007-12-07)
      We report a study of the phase behavior of multiple-occupancy crystals through simulation. We argue that in order to reproduce the equilibrium behavior of such crystals, it is essential to treat the number of lattice sites ...
