Title

On separation of minimal Riesz energy points on spheres in Euclidean spaces

Abstract

Let Sd denote the unit sphere in the Euclidean space Rd + 1 (d ≥ 1). Let N be a natural number (N ≥ 2), and let ωN {colon equals} { x1, ..., xN } be a collection of N distinct points on Sd on which the minimal Riesz s-energy is attained. In this paper, we show that the points x1, ..., xN are well-separated for the cases d - 1 ≤ s < d.
