    The field theory approach dates back to J.D. van der Waals, Verhandel. Konink.Akad. Weten. Amsterdam, Vol. 1, No. 8 (1893), English translation in J.S. Rowlinson, J. Statist. Phys. 20, 197(1979); for a modern review see e.g. D. Jasnow, Rep. Prog. Phys. 47, 1059 (1984) and D.J. Wallace3.Google Scholar
