Relaxation to Boltzmann Equilibrium of 2 D Coulomb Oscillators

We propose a two dimensional model of charged particles moving along the z axis, on which they are focused by a linear attracting field. The particles are organized into parallel uniformly charged wires, which interact with a logarithmic potential. The mean field is described by the Poisson-Vlasov equation, whereas Hamilton’s equations need to be solved to… CONTINUE READING
