Abstract : The report briefly describes five years of research. Mapping of the structure of liquid argon was done, with the completion of experiments and data analysis at twelve new thermodynamic states in the dense liquid domain. These additional experiments confirm earlier conclusions regarding systematic failure of several current integral equation theories of the liquid state. A concerted experimental attack was made on thermodynamic singularities in the critical region of argon and krypton. New techniques in inelastic light scattering also have been developed. For study of dynamical processes in liquids in liquids and were used for an extensive experimental study of dynamical correlations near the consolute point of the 2,6-lutidine water system. (Author)
