Particles interacting through long-range attraction and short-range repulsion given by power-laws have been widely used to model physical and biological systems, and to predict or explain many of the patterns they display. Apart from rare values of the attractive and repulsive exponents (α, β), the energy minimizing configurations of particles are not explicitly known, although simulations and local stability considerations have led to conjectures with strong evidence over a much wider region… Expand
Classifying minimum energy states for interacting particles (II) -- regular simplices
Consider densities of particles on R which interact pairwise through an attractive-repulsive power-law potential Wα,β(x) = |x|/α − |x|/β in the mildly repulsive regime α ≥ β ≥ 2. For n ≥ 2, we showExpand
Minimizers for a one-dimensional interaction energy
We solve explicitly a certain minimization problem for probability measures in one dimension involving an interaction energy that arises in the modelling of aggregation phenomena. We show that in aExpand

Consider a pressureless gas interacting through an attractive-repulsive potential given as a difference of power laws and normalized so that its unique minimum occurs at unit separation. For a rangeExpand
Nonlocal Shape Optimization via Interactions of Attractive and Repulsive Potentials
We consider a class of nonlocal shape optimization problems for sets of fixed mass where the energy functional is given by an attractive/repulsive interaction potential in power-law form. We findExpand

Abstract We investigate nonlocal interaction equations with repulsive–attractive radial potentials. Such equations describe the evolution of a continuum density of particles in which they repulseExpand
On the strong attraction limit for a class of nonlocal interaction energies
This note concerns the problem of minimizing a certain family of non-local energy functionals over measures on $\mathbb{R}^n$, subject to a mass constraint, in a strong attraction limit. In theseExpand
PREDICTING PATTERN FORMATION IN PARTICLE INTERACTIONS
Large systems of particles interacting pairwise in d dimensions give rise to extraordinarily rich patterns. These patterns generally occur in two types. On one hand, the particles may concentrate onExpand
Stability of ring patterns arising from two-dimensional particle interactions.
TLDR
Weakly nonlinear theory and numerical simulations demonstrate how a ring can bifurcate to more complex equilibria including triangular shapes, annuli, and spot patterns with N-fold symmetry. Expand
Uniqueness and characterization of local minimizers for the interaction energy with mildly repulsive potentials
In this paper, we are concerned with local minimizers of an interaction energy governed by repulsive–attractive potentials of power-law type in one dimension. We prove that sum of two Dirac masses isExpand
Equilibria of biological aggregations with nonlocal repulsive-attractive interactions
Abstract We consider the aggregation equation ρ t − ∇ ⋅ ( ρ ∇ K ∗ ρ ) = 0 in R n , where the interaction potential K incorporates short-range Newtonian repulsion and long-range power-law attraction.Expand
Geometry of minimizers for the interaction energy with mildly repulsive potentials
We show that the support of any local minimizer of the interaction energy consists of isolated points whenever the interaction potential is of class $C^2$ and mildly repulsive at the origin;Expand
