Abstract: For positive $\alpha$, and for complex measures $\mu$ and $\nu$ on R$\sp{n}$, define $J\sp\alpha(\mu,\nu)=\int\int\vert x-y\vert\sp\alpha\ d\mu(x)d\bar \nu(y)$. Study of the energy integral $J\sp\alpha$ has its roots in metric embedding theory and potential theory. Subject to certain moment vanishing conditions, a representation formula is proved using the Fourier transform and tempered distributions. Ideas from integral geometry are used to apply the functional $J\sp\alpha$ to irregularities of distribution, and estimates of discrepancy are obtained for measures that do not have atoms. Finally, the close relation between $J\sp1$ and the Radon transform is investigated. Inequalities are deduced that bound certain norms of the Radon transform away from zero.
