### Asymptotic analysis of a system of algebraic equations arising in dislocation theory

Abstract:

The system of algebraic equations given by $\sum_{j=0, j \neq i}^n sgn(x_i - x_j) / |x_i - x_j|^a = 1, i = 1, 2, \ldots n, x_0 = 0,$ appears in dislocation theory in models of dislocation pile-ups. Specifically, the case a = 1 corresponds to the simple situation where n dislocations are piled up against a locked dislocation, while the case a = 3 corresponds to n dislocation dipoles piled up against a locked dipole. We present a general analysis of systems of this type for a > 0 and n la...
