Title: Statistical mechanics of the classical Coulomb gas II
Speaker: Sylvia Serfaty
Speaker Info: Courant Institute at NYU
Brief Description:
Special Note:

We focus on the statistical mechanics of systems of N points with Coulomb interactions in general dimension, which corresponds on the situation with temperature in the above abstract. We discuss the free energy expansion as well as a description of the microscopic behavior of the system as N tends to infinity via a Large Deviations Principle and a Central Limit Theorem for fluctuations, and give an idea of tools and methods used to prove the results.
