The Harmonic repulsion potential, designed for studies of polymer micelles, dendrimers, and colloidal particles, is given by ([1] Eq. 2):

where is the intermolecular pair potential, is the distance between site 1 and site 2. represents a length scale and an energy. For example, for the potential looks like

Phase diagram[edit]

The phase diagram in the pressure-temperature plane has been calculated by Zhu and Lu [2].
