Kinetic Equations for Large Transient Energy Fluctuations in Small Volumes in Dense Matter

  • Yu. L. Khait
Part of the Recent Progress in Many-Body Theories book series (RPMT, volume 1)


Novel coupled kinetic integro-differential equations which describe transient many-body phenomena in small “mesoscopic” volumes of dense matter associated with the formation and relaxation of short-lived large energy fluctuations (SLEF’s) of small numbers No ≥ 1 of particles, are considered. The SLEF probability is calculated from a solution of the kinetic equations. This work is a further development of the SLEF theory proposed by the author earlier (Phys. Reports 99, 237 (1983)).

    A summary of large discrepancies between the conventional theory and experimental data obtained in various fields are given in ref. 2 where novel mechanisms and equations leading to elimination of the above discrepancies, are proposed. Applications of the SLEF theory to particular processes and materials are presented in ref. 2,6,7.Google Scholar
