    • Abstract


      Analytic expressions for the thermodynamic properties of a classical two-dimensional square-well fluid and the first quantum correction to them are derived using the Barker-Henderson perturbation theory. Numerical results are reported. It is found that the quantum effect, which increases with increase of density, is largely determined by the hard-core and the attractive tail has a minor effect at high density.
