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.
