*Phase Transitions in Galactic Nuclei*

The gravitational interaction among bodies orbiting in a spherical

potential leads to the rapid relaxation of the orbital planes'

distribution, a process called vector resonant relaxation. In this talk I

will discuss the Hamiltonian and the statistical equilibrium of this

process. The equilibrium distribution resembles a counterrotating disk at

low temperature and a spherical structure at high temperature. The system

exhibits a first order phase transition between the disk and the spherical

phase in the canonical ensemble if the total angular momentum is below a

critical value. We find that the phase transition erases the high order

multipoles, i.e. small-scale structure in angular momentum space, most

efficiently. The system admits a maximum entropy and a maximum energy,

which lead to the existence of negative temperature equilibria

Everyone is welcome!
