## Abstract

Non-relativistic bosons interacting with Coulomb forces are unstable, as Dyson showed 20 years ago, in the sense that the ground state energy satisfies E_{0} - AN^{7/5}. We prove that 7/5 is the correct power by proving that E_{0} - BN^{7/5}. For the non-relativistic bosonic, one-component jellium problem, Foldy and Girardcau showed that E_{0} - CNρ^{1/4}. This 1/4 law is also validated here by showing that E_{0} - DNρ^{1/4}. These bounds prove that the Bogoliubov type paired wave function correctly predicts the order of magnitude of the energy.
