In Section 1.4 we have introduced the renormalized energy W = W(a,d,g) for a general configuration of points (ai),1≤ i ≤ n, with associated integers d i Z such that \( \sum\nolimits_{{i = 1}}^n {{d_i} = d} \) Throughout this chapter we consider only configurations consisting of exactly d distinct points in G, each one associated to d i =+1.
