In the Stockmayer fluid, particles interact through the following pairwise additive potential
u = u_{LJ} + u_{d}
where u_{LJ} is the familiar Lennard-Jones potential
.
and u_{d} dipolar interaction between point dipoles embedded at each particle center
^{.}
In the above equations, r_{ij} is the separation vector between particles i and j with a magnitude r_{ij} and µ_{k} is the dipole moment of particle k.
The Ewald summation is used to deal with the slowly-decaying but infinitely long ranged nature of the electrostatic electrostatic interaction. Perfectly conducting boundary conditions are used. The reader is referred to Ref [1].
This is a work in progress. Additional properties and dipole strengths will be added as they become available.
