We solve an energy minimization problem for local fields. As an application of these results, we improve on lower bounds set by Bombieri and Zannier for the limit infimum of the Weil height in fields of totally p-adic numbers and generalizations thereof. In the case of fields with mixed archimedean and non-archimedean splitting conditions, we are able to combine our bounds with similar bounds at the archimedean places for totally real fields. 
Height bounds for algebraic numbers satisfying splitting conditions
Quantitative height bounds under splitting conditions
In an earlier work, the first author and Petsche used potential theoretic techniques to establish a lower bound for the height of algebraic numbers that satisfy splitting conditions, such as being
Energy integrals and small points for the Arakelov height
We study small points for the Arakelov height on the projective line. First, we identify the smallest positive value taken by the Arakelov height, and we characterize all cases of equality. Next we
Constructing totally p-adic numbers of small height
Bombieri and Zannier gave an effective construction of algebraic numbers of small height inside the maximal Galois extension of the rationals which is totally split at a given finite set of prime
Small totally p-adic algebraic numbers
The purpose of this note is to give a short and elementary proof of the fact that the absolute logarithmic Weil-height is bounded from below by a positive constant for all totally [Formula: see
Log-Coulomb gases in the projective line of a $p$-field
This article extends recent results on log-Coulomb gases in a p-field K (i.e., a nonarchimedean local field) to those in its projective line P(K), where the latter is endowed with the PGL2invariant
A Branching Random Walk on the Positive Half-Line Associated with Incompressible Navier-Stokes Equation and Euler ’ s DiLogarithmic Function
This paper treats two branching Markov chains (BMC) on the positive half-line that arise naturally in the analysis of three-dimensional incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in terms of the


On the heights of totally p-adic numbers
Bombieri and Zannier established lower and upper bounds for the limit infimum of the Weil height in fields of totally p-adic numbers and generalizations thereof. In this paper, we use potential
On totally real numbers and equidistribution
C.J. Smyth and later Flammang studied the spectrum of the Weil height in the field of all totally real numbers, establishing both lower and upper bounds for the limit infimum of the height of all
A lower bound for average values of dynamical Green’s functions
We provide a Mahler/Elkies-style lower bound for the average values of dynamical Green's functions on the projective line over an arbitrary valued field, and give some dynamical and arithmetic
