On electrostatic interpretation of constrained point clouds

We describe several classes of point clouds which can be interpreted as constrained equilibrium configurations of point charges with Coulomb interaction. The presentation will be focused on certain mathematical models of linear ion traps and concentrically constrained clouds of points. Special attention will be given to the stability and bifurcations of arising equilibrium configurations, with a view towards applications to reconfiguration of trapped ions and Coulomb control of swarms of small satellites.
