# Freezing by heating in a driven mesoscopic system

@article{Helbing2000FreezingBH, title={Freezing by heating in a driven mesoscopic system}, author={Helbing and Farkas and Vicsek}, journal={Physical review letters}, year={2000}, volume={84 6}, pages={ 1240-3 } }

We investigate a simple model corresponding to particles driven in opposite directions and interacting via a repulsive potential. The particles move off-lattice on a periodic strip and are subject to random forces as well. We show that this model-which can be considered as a continuum version of some driven diffusive systems-exhibits a paradoxical, new kind of transition called here "freezing by heating." One interesting feature of this transition is that a crystallized state with a higher…

A homogeneous spontaneous motion emerges below a transition line in the noise-density plane, and is shown to be unstable against spatial perturbations, suggesting that more complicated structures should eventually appear.

The main subject of this thesis rests on the study ---at different levels of description--- of instabilities in systems which are driven, i.e., maintained far from equilibrium by an external forcing.…

### Characterization of a freezing/melting transition in a vibrated and sheared granular medium

- Physics

It is shown that stripe-like segregation occurs also in asymmetric mixtures and an additional compression/expansion effect in the stripes composed of the small/large particles and the relaxation into the striped steady state is studied.
