A systematic study of the properties of particle and charge correlation functions in the two-dimensional Coulomb gas confined to a one-dimensional domain is undertaken. Two versions of this system are considered: one in which the positive and negative charges are constrained to alternate in sign along the line, and the other where there is no charge ordering constraint. Both systems undergo a zero-density Kosterlitz-Thouless-type transition as the dimensionless coupling Γ:=q2/kT is varied… 
Thermodynamics of Two-Component Log-Gases with Alternating Charges
We consider a one-dimensional gas of positive and negative unit charges interacting via a logarithmic potential, which is in thermal equilibrium at the (dimensionless) inverse temperature β. In a
Thermodynamic Properties of the One-Dimensional Two-Component Log-Gas
We consider a one-dimensional continuum gas of pointlike positive and negative unit charges interacting via a logarithmic potential. The mapping onto a two-dimensional boundary sine-Gordon field
Cluster conformations and multipole distributions in ionic fluids. I. Two-dimensional systems of mobile ions.
The results give rise, for the first time, to a numerical "spectroscopy" of ionic fluids, whereby each conformation is associated with distinct values of the dipole and quadrupole of the ionic cluster.
Distributions on Partitions, Point Processes,¶ and the Hypergeometric Kernel
Abstract:We study a 3-parametric family of stochastic point processes on the one-dimensional lattice originated from a remarkable family of representations of the infinite symmetric group. We prove
Fermion (or determinantal) processes with J-Hermitian kernel constitute a large class of random point fields which is of interest in math- ematical physics. They generalize the popular family of
Determinantal random point fields
This paper contains an exposition of both recent and rather old results on determinantal random point fields. We begin with some general theorems including proofs of necessary and sufficient
The problem of harmonic analysis on the infinite-dimensional unitary group
Abstract The goal of harmonic analysis on a (noncommutative) group is to decompose the most “natural” unitary representations of this group (like the regular representation) on irreducible ones. The
Harmonic analysis on the infinite-dimensional unitary group and determinantal point processes
The infinite-dimensional unitary group U(∞) is the inductive limit of growing compact unitary groups U(N). In this paper we solve a problem of harmonic analysis on U(∞) stated in [Ol3]. The problem
Asymptotics of discrete $\beta$-corners processes via two-level discrete loop equations.
We introduce and study stochastic particle ensembles which are natural discretizations of general $\beta$-corners processes. We prove that under technical assumptions on a general analytic potential
Z-Measures on Partitions, Robinson-Schensted-Knuth Correspondence, and beta=2 Random Matrix Ensembles
We suggest an hierarchy of all the results known so far about the connection of the asymptotics of combinatorial or representation theoretic problems with ``beta=2 ensembles'' arising in the random


Correlations in the Kosterlitz-Thouless phase of the two-dimensional Coulomb gas
The particle and charge correlations of the two-dimensional Coulomb gas are studied in the dielectric phase. A term-by-term analysis of the low-fugacity expansions suggests that the large-distance

A new definition of order called topological order is proposed for two-dimensional systems in which no long-range order of the conventional type exists. The possibility of a phase transition
