The Structure and Properties of Water

Efforts to verify or invalidate hypotheses on the structure of liquid water have been hampered by the lack of a general theory of the liquid state. In the absence of such a theory, conclusions about the structure of water have been based on two approaches. The first involves formulating a model for liquid water, treating the model in a particular fashion — involving massive approximations — using methods of statistical mechanics, and comparing the calculated values of macroscopic properties with those that are observed. This chapter focuses on the second approach, which is to deduce aspects of the structure of the liquid from the macroscopic properties of water.
