AbstractWe present a detailed computer simulation and integral equation study of the phase behavior of a nematogenic system composed of hard spheres with embedded three-dimensional Maier-Saupe spins. For this well-known system, we map the gas-liquid equilibrium, which is coupled to a first-order isotropic-nematic transition. The anisotropic integral equation theory is found to yield excellent agreement with the simulation data within the fluid regime. Additionally, we determine the fluid-solid equilibrium transition by means of computer simulation. © 2006 The American Physical Society
