Ground States And Hyperuniformity Of The Hierarchical Coulomb Gas In All DimensionsApr 10 2019Large ensembles of points with Coulomb interactions arise in various settings of statistical mechanics, random matrices and optimization problems. Often such systems due to their natural repulsion exhibit remarkable hyperuniformity properties, that is, ... More
