Abstract

We investigate the density profile of a fluid of hard spheres in the vicinity of a (container) wall. Our analysis is based on the solution of an integral equation satisfied by this density profile in the Lebowitz-Percus mean spherical approximation or its generalization. The latter leads to a density profile in very good agreement with machine computations.
