In this work, we analyze the asymptotic behavior of the minimum values of Riesz s-potentials generated by greedy s-energy sequences on the unit circle. The analysis is broken into the cases 0 < s < 1, s = 1, and s > 1, since the behavior of the minimum values of the Riesz s-potential undergoes a sharp transition at s = 1. For 0 < s < 1, the first-order behavior is already known. We obtain first-order asymptotic results for 0 < s < 1. We also prove first-order and second-order asymptotic formulas for s = 1 and investigate the first-order behavior for s > 1.
