Yelash–Kraska chain + vdW attraction

The repulsion term of this EOS gives correct 2nd and 3rd virial coefficients and has its pole at a reasonable packing fraction. The attractive term has ben taken from the van der Waals EOS.

The calculation of volumes for given temperature and pressure leads to a quartic equation.

adjustable parameters: 3
