Approach to equilibrium via Tsallis distributions in a realistic ionic-crystal model and in the FPU model
We report results of dynamical simulations exhibiting the occurrence of Tsallis distributions, and their eventual approach to Maxwell–Boltzmann distributions, for the normal-mode energies of FPU-like


Self-consistent check of the validity of Gibbs calculus using dynamical variables
The high- and low-energy limits of a chain of coupled rotators are integrable and correspond respectively to a set of free rotators and to a chain of harmonic oscillators. For intermediate values of
Statistical mechanics of point particles with a gravitational interaction
We study the dynamics of N point particles with a gravitational interaction. The divergence of the microcanonical partition function prevents this system from reaching equilibrium. Assuming a random
Gravity in one dimension - Persistence of correlation
Central questions are concerning the thermalization time-scale in a one-dimensional, self-gravitating system are addressed in the present consideration of the persistent correlation between the
Chaotic behavior in nonlinear Hamiltonian systems and equilibrium statistical mechanics
The relation between chaotic dynamics of nonlinear Hamiltonian systems and equilibrium statistical mechanics in its canonical ensemble formulation has been investigated for two different nonlinear
The relaxation time of a one-dimensional self-gravitating system
A computer experiment on a one-dimensional self-gravitating system is described. We attempt to observe the dynamic time required for this system to thermalize by comparing the position and velocity
Breakdown of Exponential Sensitivity to Initial Conditions: Role of the Range of Interactions
Within a microcanonical scenario we numerically study an N-sized linear chain classical inertial XY model including ferromagnetic couplings which decrease with distance as r (a $ 0). We show that for
