Abstract We present a systematic procedure for constructing higher-order quasilinear approximations for the propagator of the Klein-Kramers equation describing the motion of a Brownian particle in a general force field. Its key points are splitting the full force field into a linear contribution and an anharmonic correction, replacing the underlying Langevin equations by difference equations and solving these equations iteratively. An accurate single step propagator is then derived in terms of… CONTINUE READING
