Chaos and Statistical Mechanics in the Hamiltonian Mean Field model


We study the dynamical and statistical behavior of the Hamiltonian Mean Field (HMF) model in order to investigate the relation between microscopic chaos and phase transitions. HMF is a simple toy model of N fully-coupled rotators which shows a second order phase transition. The canonical thermodynamical solution is briefly recalled and its predictions are… (More)
