Abstract:

We prove that when correlations in an equilibrium classical system in v-dimensions, v greater than or equal, containing charges decay faster than distance-lv then the charge cloud surrounding particles has no multipole moments of order k less than or equal. This yields l1 sum rules with 1 equal infinity when the decay is exponential. This extends previous results for 1 less than or equal 2 sum rules and also generalizes them to systems containing fixed dipoles or higher multipoles. Some consequences are described.
