The page treats the models for water proposed over the years by Arieh Ben-Naim and co-workers.

## BNS model

The **BNS** model was proposed by Ben-Naim and Stillinger (Ref. 1).

## Mercedes-Benz model

The so called **Mercedes-Benz** model of water is a two dimensional model proposed in 1971 (Refs. 1 and 2).
