Title: Effective Coupling Between Two Brownian Particles.
Author: Duarte, O S
Caldeira, A O
Abstract: We use the system-plus-reservoir approach to study the dynamics of a system composed of two independent Brownian particles. We present an extension of the well-known model of a bath of oscillators which is capable of inducing an effective coupling between the two particles depending on the choice made for the spectral function of the bath oscillators. The coupling is nonlinear in the variables of interest, and an exponential dependence on these variables is imposed in order to guarantee the translational invariance of the model if the two particles are not subject to any external potential. The effective equations of motion for the particles are obtained by the Laplace transform method, and, besides recovering all the local dynamical properties for each particle, we end up with an effective interaction potential between them. We explicitly analyze one of its possible forms.
