Abstract

The equilibrium physical cluster distribution in a supersaturated vapor mixture was computed using Monte Carlo simulations. A statistical mechanical formula of Gibbs free energy based on physical-cluster theory of nucleation was derived and a molecular interpretation was presented. Results confirmed the existence of mutual enhancement of nucleation in a binary model system composed of Lennard-J ones monomers and dimers.
