What do you know about the hard sphere model? and for this model used for colloids and polimers in fluids?

Hard sphere model

Could you advise some book to learn about the topic?

Start with the classic paper (Percus-Yevick model), then move on to any decent book about colloids- monodisperse hard sphere colloids are a well-studied experimental system. Paul Chaikin, David Weitz, and others have published quite a bit in this area.

See also the early chapters in Chaikin & Lubensky.

Could you give me the complete reference of the paper (Percus-Yevick model)? I didn't find.
