Title: Alternative first-principles calculation of entropy for liquids

Abstract

Here, w present an alternative method for interpreting the velocity autocorrelation function (VACF) of a fluid with application to extracting the entropy in a manner similar to the methods developed by Lin et al. [J. Chem. Phys. 119, 11792 (2003)] and improved upon by Desjarlais [Phys. Rev. E 88, 062145 (2013)]. The liquid VACF is decomposed into two components, one gas and one solid, and each contribution's entropic portion is calculated. But, we fit both the gas and solid portions of the VACF in the time domain. This approach is applied to a single-component liquid (a two-phase model of liquid Al at the melt line) and two different two-component systems: a superionic-to-superionic (bcc to fcc) phase transition in H 2 O at high temperatures and pressures and a metastable liquid state of MgO. Finally, for all three examples, comparisons to existing results in the literature demonstrate the validity of our alternative.
