# Priors leading to well-behaved Coulomb and Riesz gases versus zeroth-order phase transitions – a potential-theoretic characterization

@article{Berman2018PriorsLT, title={Priors leading to well-behaved Coulomb and Riesz gases versus zeroth-order phase transitions – a potential-theoretic characterization}, author={Robert J Berman}, journal={Electronic Journal of Probability}, year={2018} }

We give a potential-theoretic characterization of measures µ 0 which have the property that the Coulomb gas, deﬁned with respect to the prior µ 0 , is “well-behaved” and similarly for more general Riesz gases. This means that the laws of the empirical measures of the corresponding random point process satisfy a Large Deviation Principle with a rate functional which depends continuously on the temperature, in the sense of Gamma-convergence. Equivalently, there is no zeroth-order phase transition…
