Communication: Universal Markovian reduction of Brownian particle dynamics.

Abstract

Non-Markovian processes can often be turned Markovian by enlarging the set of variables. Here we show, by an explicit construction, how this can be done for the dynamics of a Brownian particle obeying the generalized Langevin equation. Given an arbitrary bath spectral density J(0), we introduce an orthogonal transformation of the bath variables into… (More)
