The statistical geometry of intermolecular cavities in a confined Lennard-Jones (LJ) fluid is studied. Phase transitions in the confined LJ fluid are characterized by equilibrium stable and metastable states using grand canonical Monte Carlo simulations. The cavity size distribution in liquidlike states, characterized by different densities, can be approximated by a universal log-normal distribution function.
