Abstract:

This work is an attempt at presenting an overview of the field of liquid water. The first chapter contains a summary of some of the known thermodynamic, transport, and molecular properties of this liquid. The supercooled and superheated liquid ranges are also considered due to the relatively recent interest in these uneasily accessed states. The second chapter contains a cursory review of the various models dealing with the structure of water. The semi empirical ad-hoc models are described together with the lattice and cells models, as well as the methods of integral equations and computer simulations. The results of a few representative works are summarized in an attempt to obtain a general picture of the present status of this field. This work is by no means exhaustive, to include all the existing works is a task outside of the scope of this contribution. Author
