A path integral influence from a solvent was proposed to determine a self correlation function of a quantum particle in classical simple fluid. Result show that the influence functional is related to a grand potential functional of the pure solvent under a three dimensional external field. The self correlation function, the solvent-solvent and the solute-solvent pair correlation function were used to calculate the influence functional. The path integral of the electron were performed using the Fourier path-integral Monte Carlo technique.
