Structural models of water

Institute for Theoretical and Experimental Biophysics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Institutskaya str. 3, Pushchino, Moscow Region, 142290, Russian Federation

Various conceptions on the structure of water are reviewed and different intermolecular interaction models underlying its description are discussed. To describe the structure of water, the method of integral equations for correlation functions borrowed from the theory of liquids is applied. Some numerical simulation results obtained with the Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics methods are also discussed in the context of water structural peculiarities.
