At some special temperature T/sub 0/, the distribution functions of a two-dimensional one-component plasma are explicitly computed up to the four-body one. The correlations have a Gaussian falloff. The distribution functions at T/sub 0/ are used for building a temperature expansion around T/sub 0/.

Exact results for the two-dimensional two-component plasma
Abstract The free energy and correlation functions of a two-dimensional two-component plasma are explicitly computed at the special temperature T 0 = e 2 2k B .
The two-dimensional one-component plasma at Γ=2: The semiperiodic strip
The one-component two-dimensional plasma is studied in a strip of finite width, replicated periodically parallel to the long axis of the strip. Exact results for the one- and two-particle
On the internal energy of the classical two-dimensional one-component-plasma
We describe a new semi-phenomenological approach to estimate the internal energy of the classical one-component-plasma in two dimensions. This approach reproduces the Debye-Huckel asymptote in the
Surface properties of a classical two-dimensional one-component plasma: Exact results
At one special temperature, the equilibrium statistical mechanics of a classical two-dimensional one-component plasma can be worked out exactly. This model is used for computing the density profile
The two-dimensional one-component plasma in the hypernetted chain approximation
The authors present numerical solutions of the hypernetted chain equation for the pair distribution function of the classical two-dimensional Coulomb gas over a wide range of couplings,
Liquid structural theories of two- and three-dimensional plasmas
Abstract Following a treatment of a two-dimensional and one-component plasma (OCP) with a In r interaction which possesses a Fourier transform, proposals are made for a generalized structural theory
Computation of interface density profiles by density functional theories: application to the two-dimensional one-component plasma
We derive a density functional theory appropriate for hard wall problems. This formalism and the familiar square gradient theory are tested in the case of the two dimensional, one component plasma.
The two-dimensional one-component plasma in a doubly periodic background: Exact results
We revisit the equilibrium classical statistical mechanics of the two-dimensional one-component plasma, for the special value Γ=2 of the coupling constant. Using a new method, we find that the model
The model under consideration is that of a two-dimensional one-component plasma confined to the surface of a sphere. In the canonical format, the system is mapped onto a discrete one-dimensional
Statistical mechanics of two-dimensional Coulomb systems: II. The two-dimensional one-component plasma
Abstract We report the results of molecular dynamics calculations of the two-dimensional one-component plasma with logarithmic interactions between the particles. A solid-fluid transition is observed
