Abstract

We characterize the high intensity limits of minimal free energy states for interacting corpora - that is, for objects with finitely many degrees of freedom, such as articulated rods. These limits are measures supported on zero-level-sets of the interaction potential. We describe a selection mechanism for the limits that is mediated by evanescent entropic contributions.
