Large Deviations Techniques for Long-Range Interactions

After a brief introduction to the main equilibrium features of long-range interacting systems (ensemble inequivalence, negative specific heat and susceptibility, broken ergodicity, etc.) and a recall

Statistical thermodynamics of long-range interacting systems and near-field thermal radiation

[eng] Two main topics are examined in this thesis: classical systems with long-range interactions and thermal radiation in the near-field regime. In the first part, we present a thermodynamic

Statistical mechanics of systems with long-range interactions and negative absolute temperature.

It is shown, by analytical computations, that there exists an energy interval in which the microcanonical entropy is a decreasing convex function of the total energy, meaning that ensemble equivalence is violated in a negative-temperature regime.

Statistical thermodynamics of long-range quantum spin systems

In this thesis we discuss some of the anomalies present in systems with long-range interactions, for instance negative specific heat and negative magnetic susceptibility, and show how they can be

Synchronized states of one dimensional long-range systems induced by inelastic collisions

We report results of numerical experiments which show that a family of simple one dimensional particle systems with long-range interactions, when subjected to a certain class of inelastic

Validity and failure of the Boltzmann weight

The dynamics and thermostatistics of a classical inertial XY model, characterized by long-range interactions, are investigated on d-dimensional lattices (d = 1, 2, and 3), through molecular dynamics.



The Hamiltonian Mean Field Model: From Dynamics to Statistical Mechanics and Back

The thermodynamics and the dynamics of particle systems with infiniterange coupling display several unusual and new features with respect to systems with short-range interactions. The Hamiltonian

Dynamics and thermodynamics of systems with long‐range interactions: interpretation of the different functionals

We discuss the dynamics and thermodynamics of systems with weak long‐range interactions. Generically, these systems experience a violent collisionless relaxation in the Vlasov regime leading to a


A system of N classical particles in a two-dimensional periodic cell interacting via a long-range attractive potential is studied numerically and theoretically. For low energy density U a collapsed

Dynamics and thermodynamics of a simple model similar to self-gravitating systems: the HMF model

Abstract.We discuss the dynamics and thermodynamics of the Hamiltonian Mean Field model (HMF) which is a prototypical system with long-range interactions. The HMF model can be seen as the one

First- and second-order clustering transitions for a system with infinite-range attractive interaction.

A canonical analysis, extended to metastable and unstable states, is able to describe the microcanonical equilibrium phase of a Hamiltonian system made of N classical particles moving in two dimensions, coupled via an infinite-range interaction gauged by a parameter A.

The challenges of finite-system statistical mechanics

Abstract.In this paper, we review the main challenges associated with the statistical mechanics of finite systems, with a particular emphasis on the present understanding of phase transitions in the

Thermo-statistics or Topology of the Microcanonical Entropy Surface

Boltzmann’s principle S(E, N, V ...) = lnW(E, N, V ...) allows the interpretation of Statistical Mechanics of a closed system as Pseudo-Riemannian geometry in the space of the conserved parameters E,
