Structural Covariance in the Hard Sphere Fluid.

Benjamin M.G.D. Carter, Francesco Turci, Pierre Ronceray, C. Patrick Royall

We study the joint variability of structural information in a hard sphere fluid biased to avoid crystallisation and form fivefold symmetric geometric motifs. We show that the structural covariance matrix approach, originally proposed for on-lattice liquids, can be meaningfully employed to understand structural relationships between different motifs and can predict, within the linear-response regime, structural changes related to motifs distinct from that used to bias the system.
