Abstract : A new method is used to find that the two-dimensional one-component plasma in a inhomogenous background is a solvable model, in equilibrium classical statistical mechanics, for the special value Gamma = 2 of the coupling constant, for a larger class of background shapes: the n-body densities can be explicitly computed. In particular, we can deal with a doubly periodic background; this is a classical model for a crystal mode of fixed ions and mobile electrons. At Gamma = 2, this system is conductor: the correlations have a fast decay, and the Stillinger-Lovett screening sum rule is obeyed.
