Abstract: We revisit the equilibrium properties of a classical one-dimensional system of hardcore particles in the framework provided by the multiparticle correlation expansion of the configurational entropy. The vanishing of the cumulative contribution of more-than-two-particle correlations to the excess entropy is put in relation with the onset of a solidlike behavior at high densities.
