    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.
