 Summary
 This short primer offers nonspecialist readers a concise, yet comprehensive introduction to the field of classical fluids – providing both fundamental information and a number of selected topics to bridge the gap between the basics and ongoing research. In particular, hardsphere systems represent a favorite playground in statistical mechanics, both in and out of equilibrium, as they represent the simplest models of manybody systems of interacting particles, and at higher temperature and densities they have proven to be very useful as reference systems for real fluids. Moreover, their usefulness in the realm of soft condensed matter has become increasingly recognized – for instance, the effective interaction among (sterically stabilized) colloidal particles can be tuned to almost perfectly match the hardsphere model. These lecture notes present a brief, selfcontained overview of equilibrium statistical mechanics of classical fluids, with special applications to both the structural and thermodynamic properties of systems made of particles interacting via the hardsphere potential or closely related model potentials. In particular it addresses the exact statisticalmechanical properties of onedimensional systems, the issue of thermodynamic (in)consistency among different routes in the context of several approximate theories, and the construction of analytical or semianalytical approximations for the structural properties. Written pedagogically at the graduate level, with many figures, tables, photographs, and guided endofchapter exercises, this introductory text benefits students and newcomers to the field alike.
