Interacting Brownian Particles: A Study of Dyson’s Model

  • Herbert Spohn
Part of the The IMA Volumes in Mathematics and Its Applications book series (IMA, volume 9)


We study the equilibrium fluctuations of Brownian particles in one dimension interacting through the pair force 1/x. In the hydrodynamic limit the structure function is S(k,t) = (|k|/2π)exp[−|t| |k|πρ] with ρ the density of particles and the fluctuation field is Gaussian.
