Crystalline ordering in hardcore lattice particle systems
Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA
August 5, 2020
I will present a class of hardcore lattice particle systems which exhibit a crystalline phase at high densities. The key ingredient of the proof is to show that the GauntFisher highfugacity expansion is convergent for such models, which we accomplish using methods from PirogovSinai theory. Crystallization can then be proved by studying the lower order terms of the expansion and bounding the remainder. This is joint work with Joel L. Lebowitz.
