### Abstract

Abstract. We fully characterize the small-parameter limit for a class of lattice models with twoparticle long or short range interactions with no \exchange energy. " One of the problems we consider is that of characterizing the continuum limit of the classical magnetostatic energy of a sequence of magnetic dipoles on a Bravais lattice, (letting the lattice parameter tend to zero). In order to describe the small-parameter limit, we use discrete Wigner transforms to transform the stored-energy which is given by the double convolution of a sequence of (dipole) functions on a Bravais lattice with a kernel, homogeneous of degree with N with the cancellation property, as the lattice parameter tends to zero. By rescaling and using Fourier methods, discrete Wigner transforms in particular, to transform the problem to one on the torus, we are able to characterize the small-parameter limit of the energy depending on whether the dipoles oscillate on the scale of the lattice, oscillate on a much longer lengthscale, or converge strongly. In the case where> N, the result is simple and can be characterized by anintegral with respect to the Wigner measure limit on the torus. In the case where = N, oscillations essentially on the scale of the lattice must be separated from oscillations essentially onamuch longer lengthscale in order to characterize the energy in terms of the Wigner measure limit on the torus, an H-measure limit, and the limiting magnetization. We show that the classical
