Hard-point particle

  1. Aug 17, 2013 #1
    Hi all,

    what do you understand by a hard-point gas?, I mean in terms of its hamiltonian.

    Thanks in advance.

    Let me know if this is incorrect but I think what you are asking is, what is the form of the hamiltonian of a hard-sphere system?

    If so, is there something in this definition that is troublesome? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_spheres

    Thank you Jorriss, yes I realized that the hard-point gas is the same than the hard-sphere gas but in one dimension.

    Sure, but I am unclear on what you are wondering about.
