The Duh-Haymet (Ref. 1) (1995) Padé (3/2) approximation for the bridge function for the Lennard-Jones system is (Eq. 13)

B(\gamma^{*})= - \frac{1}{2} \gamma^{*2} \left[ \frac{1}{ \left[ 1+ \left( \frac{5\gamma^{*} +11}{7\gamma^{*} +9} \right) \gamma^{*}  \right]} \right]

where (Eq. 10)

\left. \gamma^{*}(r) \right.= \gamma (r)  - \beta \Phi_p(r)

where \Phi_p (r) is the perturbative (attractive) part of the pair potential.
