The liquid-solid transition is found by calculating the thermodynamic potential of a dense classical system as a function of order parameters which are proportional to the lattice Fourier components of the density. Properties of the fluid enter only through the direct two-particle correlation function near freezing. Calculated parameters for freezing into bcc, fcc and hexagonal structures are in good agreement with experimental results.
