"Continuum Calogero-Sutherland Models"
ABSTRACT:
The Calogero-Sutherland family of models consist of point particles moving on a line or circle and interacting with a repulsive inverse-square potential. Both the classical and quantum versions are completely integrable, and are the subject of an extensive literature. I will describe their origin, their connection with the Hall effect and the Benjamin-Ono equation, and some of the subtleties that arise from the existence of two inner products.
