A one-dimensional chain of atoms of two types is investigated. It is proven exactly for the model of attracting hard spheres that if the ratio of the numbers of atoms of the two types is irrational, then the state of absolutely minimal energy is quasicrystalline. The quasicrystalline state is also investigated in the case of the Lennard-Jones interatomic potential. All the microscopic values (interatomic spacing, electronic density, etc.) are shown to be quasiperiodic functions varying on…

Binary Decoration and Diffraction Pattern in One-Dimensional Lattice Gas Model

A study is made of a one-dimensional lattice gas model with the interaction between particles being repulsive, convex, and of an arbitrary finite range. The system has two parameters, the particle

Thermal fluctuations around classical crystalline ground states. The case of bounded fluctuations

We study low--temperature non Gaussian thermal fluctuations of a system of classical particles around a (hypothetical) crystalline ground state. These thermal fluctuations are described by the

KAM THEORY FOR QUASI-PERIODIC EQUILIBRIA IN 1-D QUASIPERIODIC MEDIA

We consider Frenkel-Kontorova models corresponding to 1 dimensional quasicrystals. We present a KAM theory for quasi-periodic equilibria. The theorem presented has an a-posteriori format. We show

Metric properties of minimal solutions of discrete periodical variational problems

Quasicrystals: a new class of ordered structures

A quasicrystal is the natural extension of the notion of a crystal to structures with quasiperiodic, rather than periodic, translational order. We classify two- and three-dimensional quasicrystals by

Fractal structure of the equilibrium crystal shape

The equilibrium crystal shape of the classical crystal at zero temperature is found in the framework of the model suppressing the atomic distorsions. In this model the interaction between two atoms

Metallic Phase with Long-Range Orientational Order and No Translational Symmetry

We have observed a metallic solid (Al-14-at.%-Mn) with long-range orientational order, but with icosahedral point group symmetry, which is inconsistent with lattice translations. Its diffraction

Devil's staircase and order without periodicity in classical condensed matter

The existence of incommensurate structures proves that crystal ordering is not always the most stable one for nonquantum matter. Some properties of structures which are obtained by minimizing a free

On the properties of monolayers of adsorbed atoms

The structure of monolayers adsorbed on solids is investigated and the consequences of particular force laws explored. The dipole-dipole interaction is assumed to predominate and a model is developed

Exact models with a complete Devil's staircase

The author describes two exact models which exhibit a complete Devil's staircase which can both be calculated explicitly with the same method. The first one is a discrete Frenkel-Kontorova model (an

Modulated structure of the NC-type (N = 5.5) pyrrhotite, Fe1−xS

The modulated structure of the NC-type pyrrhotite Fe1 - xS with x = 0.09 has been determined. The analysis is based on a four-dimensional space group, Wpna21qq1, and an anharmonic modulation model
