Abstract : In order to carry out a cell-cluster analysis of the classical configurational partition function or nu-dimensional hard-particle/lattice systems the authors employ the Salsburg exponential polynomial integration algorithm. The scheme has been generalized in forder to be able to ascertain the contents of irregular convex polytopes which arise on considering imperfect, irregular lattice systems. (Author)
