Idealised models usually consist of a simple intermolecular pair potential, whose purpose is often to study underlying physical phenomena, such as generalised phase diagrams and the study of phase transitions. It is entirely possible that a number of the models bear little or no resemblance to real molecular fluids.

Lattice models

'Hard' models

Multi-site models

Piecewise continuous models

Multi-site models

'Soft' models

Multi-site models

Patchy models

Charged or polar models

Three-body and many-body potentials

Metals
