Henderson’s theorem states that two potential energy functions that produce the same radial distribution function (RDF) can differ only by a constant. In the daily business of coarse-graining, though, we often face the fact that remarkably different poten- tials give rise to RDF’s which are indistinguishable within the available numerical accuracy.
