We address this structural precursor to freezing using an inhomogeneous integral equation theory capable of describing local packing constraints to a high level of accuracy. The addition of a short-range attractive interaction leads to a well known broadening of the fluid-solid coexistence region as a function of attraction strength. The appearance of a shoulder in our calculated radial distribution functions is found to be consistent with the broadened coexistence region for a simple model potential, thus demonstrating that the shoulder is not exclusively a high density packing effect.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Brader, Joseph M.</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2008</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Brader, Joseph M.</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
