Physics of Long-Range Interacting Systems

A. Campa, T. Dauxois, D. Fanelli, and S. Ruffo


This book deals with an important class of many-body systems: those where the interaction potential decays slowly for large inter-particle distance. In particular, systems where the decay is slower than the inverse inter-particle distance raised to the dimension of the embedding space. Gravitational and Coulomb interactions are the most prominent examples. However, it has become clear that long-range interactions are more common than previously thought. This has stimulated a growing interest in the study of long-range interacting systems, which has led to a much better understanding of the man ... More

Keywords: statistical mechanics, mean-field models, ensemble inequivalence, negative specific heat, out-of-equilibrium dynamics, kinetic theory, gravitation, Coulomb, plasma, wave-particles interaction, dipolar, two-dimensional hydrodynamics
