We formulate a general setting for the cluster expansion method and we discuss sufficient criteria for its convergence. We apply the results to systems of classical and quantum particles with stable interactions. 
Construction of point processes for classical and quantum gases
We propose a construction of point processes via the method of cluster expansion. The important role of the class of infinitely divisible point processes is noted. Examples are permanental and
Cluster Expansion in the Canonical Ensemble
We consider a system of particles confined in a box $${\Lambda \subset \mathbb{R}^d}$$ interacting via a tempered and stable pair potential. We prove the validity of the cluster expansion for the
Cluster expansions: Necessary and sufficient convergence conditions
We prove a new convergence condition for the activity expansion of correlation functions in equilibrium statistical mechanics with possibly negative pair potentials. For non-negative pair potentials,
Long-time derivation at equilibrium of the fluctuating Boltzmann equation
We study a hard sphere gas at equilibrium, and prove that in the low density limit, the fluctuations converge to a Gaussian process governed by the fluctuating Boltzmann equation. This result holds
Asymptotic expansion of the log-partition function for a gas of interacting Brownian loops. II.
The asymptotic behavior of the logarithm of the grand partition function of a quantum gas in the Feynman-Kac representation is studied. Under suitable restrictions on the stable pair potential the
Local moderate and precise large deviations via cluster expansions
We consider a system of classical particles confined in a box Λ ⊂ Rd with general boundary conditions interacting via a stable and regular pair potential. Based on the validity of the cluster
Local Moderate and Precise Large Deviations via Cluster Expansions
We consider a system of classical particles confined in a box $\Lambda \subset \mathbb{R}^d$ with general boundary conditions interacting via a stable and regular pair potential. Based on the
Fluctuation Theory in the Boltzmann–Grad Limit
We develop a rigorous theory of hard-sphere dynamics in the kinetic regime, away from thermal equilibrium. In the low density limit, the empirical density obeys a law of large numbers and the
Cluster Expansions with Renormalized Activities and Applications to Colloids
We consider a binary system of small and large objects in the continuous space interacting via a nonnegative potential. By integrating over the small objects, the effective interaction between the
Correlation of clusters: Partially truncated correlation functions and their decay
In this article, we investigate partially truncated correlation functions (PTCF) of infinite continuous systems of classical point particles with pair interaction. We derive Kirkwood-Salsburg-type


Cluster expansions and correlation functions
A cluster expansion is proposed, that applies to both continuous and discrete systems. The assumption for its convergence involves an extension of the neat Kotecky-Preiss criterion. Expressions and
A new form of the Mayer expansion in classical statistical mechanics
New expressions are given for the expansion coefficients in the Mayer expansion (and thus the virial expansion). These promise to be useful in applications, as well as provide a simple rigorous proof
Cluster expansion for abstract polymer models
A new direct proof of convergence of cluster expansions for polymer (contour) models is given in an abstract setting. It does not rely on Kirkwood-Salsburg type equations or “combinatorics of trees.”
Abstract Polymer Models with General Pair Interactions
Abstract A convergence criterion of cluster expansion is presented in the case of an abstract polymer system with general pair interactions (i.e. not necessarily hard core or repulsive). As a
A Simple Inductive Approach to the Problem of Convergence of Cluster Expansions of Polymer Models
We explain a simple inductive method for the analysis of the convergence of cluster expansions (Taylor expansions, Mayer expansions) for the partition functions of polymer models. We give a very
Cluster Expansion for Abstract Polymer Models. New Bounds from an Old Approach
We revisit the classical approach to cluster expansions, based on tree graphs, and establish a new convergence condition that improves those by Kotecký-Preiss and Dobrushin, as we show in some

A connected graph identity and convergence of cluster expansions
Recently Fernandez and Procacci found an estimate on the radius of convergence of the cluster expansion for a gas of particles on a discrete space. Their estimate is an improvement on previous
