Abstract

We present a method of computing the Coulomb forces on particles in an infinite configuration of charges in one dimension. The resolution of the apparent nonuniqueness in this problem leads to a structural proof of the translation symmetry breaking in jellium, at all temperatures, and to a related phenomenon of phase nonuniqueness in the two component system. The appropriate generalizations of the DLR and KMS conditions for these states are discussed.
