Exponentially long times to equipartition in the thermodynamic limit
Abstract We investigate with numerical methods the scaling of the relaxation time to equipartition in the celebrated Fermi–Pasta–Ulam model. Our numerical results strongly suggest that the timeExpand

Localization of energy in FPU chains
We revisit the celebrated model of Fermi, Pasta and Ulam with the aim of investigating, by numerical computations, the trend towards equipartition in the thermodynamic limit. We concentrate our Expand
