Lorentz space estimates for the coulombian renormalized energy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we obtain optimal estimates for the "currents" associated to point masses in the plane, in terms of the Coulombian renormalized energy of Sandier-Serfaty [From the GinzburgLandau model to vortex lattice problems, to appear in Comm. Math. Phys. (2012); One-dimensional log gases and the renormalized energy, in preparation]. To derive the estimates, we use a technique that we introduced in [Lorentz space estimates for the Ginzburg-Landau energy, J. Funct. Anal. 254(3) (2008) 773-825], which couples the "ball construction method" to estimates in the Lorentz space L 2,∞.
