The expansion at small should coincide with virial expansion! If we know N=n+m virial coefficients, (n,m)-Padé approximant can be constructed. (3,3) approximant describes the simulation (P,V,T) data for hard spheres a lot better, than the corresponding virial expansion with 6 virial coefficients. This is however empirical and ambiguous approach. Alternative description is necessary.
