An analysis of the effect of ghost force oscillation on quasicontinuum error

Matthew Dobson, Mitchell Luskin (2009)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

The atomistic to continuum interface for quasicontinuum energies exhibits nonzero forces under uniform strain that have been called ghost forces. In this paper, we prove for a linearization of a one-dimensional quasicontinuum energy around a uniform strain that the effect of the ghost forces on the displacement nearly cancels and has a small effect on the error away from the interface. We give optimal order error estimates that show that the quasicontinuum displacement converges to the atomistic...

Entropy maximisation problem for quantum relativistic particles

Miguel Escobedo, Stéphane Mischler, Manuel A. Valle (2005)

Bulletin de la Société Mathématique de France

The entropy of an ideal gas, both in the case of classical and quantum particles, is maximised when the number particle density, linear momentum and energy are fixed. The dispersion law energy to momentum is chosen as linear or quadratic, corresponding to non-relativistic or relativistic behaviour.

Mean-field evolution of fermionic systems

Marcello Porta (2014/2015)

Séminaire Laurent Schwartz — EDP et applications

We study the dynamics of interacting fermionic systems, in the mean-field regime. We consider initial states which are close to quasi-free states and prove that, under suitable assumptions on the inital data and on the many-body interaction, the quantum evolution of the system is approximated by a time-dependent quasi-free state. In particular we prove that the evolution of the reduced one-particle density matrix converges, as the number of particles goes to infinity, to the solution of the time-dependent...
