      The structures and autocorrelation functions of Al and Mg in the liquid state are investigated through the pair distribution functiong(r), the diffusion coefficients as well as the shear viscosity via the Green-Kubo and Einstein relations. From the structure and the Enskog relation we determined the frequency of collisions of atoms in the first shell ofg(r) in the systems. We also discovered that the packing fraction of Lennard-Jones liquids should be approximately half the reduced density value. This approximation is accurate to within 99%. The temperature dependence of the pair distribution function and the atomic mean square displacement are investigated by performing simulations at various experimental temperatures and corresponding densities. The structures of the systems are affected by temperature via movements of atoms in the first minimum ofg(r).

      The Lennard-Jones model shows that density dependence of the shear viscosity is in agreement with what is expected of simple liquids in the range of investigated temperatures and densities. In the gas limit, the Stoke-Einstein relation =KBT/2πσ is grossly overestimated by Lennard-Jones model. This could not be attributed to deficiencies in the model, as other investigators using first principle method could not obtain the gas limit of the Stoke-Einstein relation.

      We investigate the effects of temperature and density on the single-particle and many-particle coefficients as well as on the structures of homogenous systems in which the particles are assumed to interact via a continuous soft sphere potential in the microcanonical ensemble. The pair distribution function and therefore the structures of the systems studied are affected by temperature close to and above the melting point through migrations of atoms from the first shell in the pair distribution function.

      The dynamics of atomic pairs in the short-time regime in liquid aluminium may be said to be governed by the potential of mean force, which depends on the static structure of liquid Al at all investigated temperatures. A polynomial dependence ofD on density and temperature was observed in contradiction to Arrhenius law. The shear viscosities of the systems studied are largely nonlinear. It was observed that the soft sphere potential used in our calculations overestimates the Stoke-Einstein relation.
