Institute for Theoretical and Experimental Biophysics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Institutskaya str. 3, Pushchino, Moscow Region, 142290, Russian Federation
This review presents the fundamentals of the method of integral equations of the theory of liquids. One of the central problems of the theory, the definition of bridge-functionals, is analyzed. Some applications of the method of integral equations to simple liquid systems are discussed, and the problem of description of complex polyatomic classical systems is considered.
