The disordered and hyperuniform structures of densely packed spheres near and at jamming are characterized by vanishing of long-wavelength density fluctuations, or equivalently by long-range power-law decay of the direct correlation function (DCF). We focus on previous simulation results that exhibit the degradation of hyperuniformity in jammed structures while maintaining the long-range nature of the DCF to a certain length scale. Here we demonstrate that the field-theoretic formulation of… Expand

It is argued that the regularity of the void space induced by the constraints of saturation and strict jamming overcomes the local inhomogeneity of the disk centers to induce hyperuniformity in the medium with a linear small-wave-number nonanalytic behavior in the spectral density, resulting in quasi-long-range spatial correlations scaling with r(-(d+1)) in d Euclidean space dimensions.

The linear DK equation is applied to investigate density fluctuations around the ground state distribution of strongly coupled counterions near a charged plate, finding a crossover scale above which the transverse density dynamics appears frozen and below which diffusive behavior of counterions can be observed on the charged plate.
