Within QMD simulations we demonstrate the effect of virial corrections on heavy ion reactions. Unlike in standard codes, the binary collisions are treated as non-local so that the contribution of the collision flux to the reaction dynamics is covered. A comparison with standard QMD simulations shows that the virial corrections lead to a broader proton(More)
For a system of noninteracting electrons scattered by neutral impurities, we derive a modified Boltzmann equation that includes quasiparticle and virial corrections. We start from a quasiclassical transport equation for nonequilibrium Green’s functions and apply a limit of small scattering rates. The resulting transport equation for quasiparticles has(More)
The formation of binary correlations in plasma is studied from the quantum kinetic equation. It is shown that this formation is much faster than dissipation due to collisions. In a hot (dense) plasma the correlations are formed on the scale of inverse plasma frequency (Fermi energy). We derive analytical formulae for the time dependency of the potential(More)
A kinetic equation which combines the quasiparticle drift of Landau’s equation with a dissipation governed by a nonlocal and noninstant scattering integral in the spirit of Snider’s equation for gases is derived. Consequent balance equations for the density, momentum and energy include quasiparticle contributions and the second order quantum virial(More)

Collisional relaxation rates of collective modes in nuclei are calculated using the Levinson equation for the reduced density matrix with a memory dependent collision term. Linearizing the collision integral two contribution have to be distinguished, the one from the quasiparticle energy and the one from occupation factors. The first one yields the known(More)
