Long-wave low-frequency oscillations are described in a Wigner crystal by generalization of the reverse continuum model for the case of electronic lattice. The internal self-consistent long-wave electromagnetic field is used to describe the collective motions in the system. The eigenvectors and eigenvalues of the obtained system of equations are derived. The velocities of longitudinal and transversal sound waves are found.

We consider long-wave high-frequency upper phonon-polaritons and longitudinal optical phonons in diatomic ionic crystal. The model of free ions which are polarized in self-consistent electromagnetic



Sliding motion of a two-dimensional Wigner crystal in a strong magnetic field.

It is found that, within the large-velocity perturbation theory, free carriers which affect the longitudinal phonon modes of the Wigner crystal do not change the form of the nonlinear conductivity.

Diffusion quantum Monte Carlo study of three-dimensional Wigner crystals

We report diffusion quantum Monte Carlo calculations of three-dimensional Wigner crystals in the density range rs=100–150. We have tested different types of orbital for use in the approximate wave

Coulomb crystals in the harmonic lattice approximation

The dynamic structure factor &Stilde;(k,omega) and the two-particle distribution function g(r,t) of ions in a Coulomb crystal are obtained in a closed analytic form using the harmonic lattice (HL)

On the Interaction of Electrons in Metals

The energy of interaction between free electrons in an electron gas is considered. The interaction energy of electrons with parallel spin is known to be that of the space charges plus the exchange

Configurational entropy of Wigner clusters

The configurational entropy can be understood as the logarithm of the effective number of states; it is insensitive to the presence of overlooked low-probability states and can be reliably determined even within the limited time of a simulation or an experiment.

Mathematical Theory of Elastic Structures

The book covers three main topics: the classical theory of linear elasticity, the mathematical theory of composite elastic structures, as an application of the theory of elliptic equations on

Crystallization in two-component Coulomb systems.

Holes in semiconductors with sufficiently flat valence bands are predicted to spontaneously order into a regular lattice and are intimately related to ion Coulomb crystals in white dwarf and neutron stars as well as to ion crystals produced in the laboratory.

Wigner crystallization in a quasi-three-dimensional electronic system

Application of extreme magnetic fields to a low-disorder 2D electron gas causes its electrons to reorder through an unexpected transition from a 2D to quasi-3D Wigner crystal state.
