# Difference between revisions of "Bridge function"

The bridge functions are infinite series of irreducible diagrams $D_i$:

$B^{(2)}(r) = \rho^2 \frac{1}{2} D_1(r) + \rho^3 [D_2(r) + D_3(r)] + \rho^4[...]+...$

and

$B^{(1)}(r) = \frac{1}{3} B^{(2)}(r) + \rho^3 \left[\frac{1}{6}D_2(r) - \frac{1}{12}D_3(r)\right] + \rho^4[...]+...$

where $\rho$ is the density of the fluid.
