Derivation of Langevin dynamics in a nonzero background flow field
ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique, Tome 47 (2013) no. 6, p. 1583-1626
We propose a derivation of a nonequilibrium Langevin dynamics for a large particle immersed in a background flow field. A single large particle is placed in an ideal gas heat bath composed of point particles that are distributed consistently with the background flow field and that interact with the large particle through elastic collisions. In the limit of small bath atom mass, the large particle dynamics converges in law to a stochastic dynamics. This derivation follows the ideas of [P. Calderoni, D. Dürr and S. Kusuoka, J. Stat. Phys. 55 (1989) 649-693. D. Dürr, S. Goldstein and J. Lebowitz, Z. Wahrscheinlichkeit 62 (1983) 427-448. D. Dürr, S. Goldstein and J.L. Lebowitz. Comm. Math. Phys. 78 (1981) 507-530.] and provides extensions to handle the nonzero background flow. The derived nonequilibrium Langevin dynamics is similar to the dynamics in [M. McPhie, P. Daivis, I. Snook, J. Ennis and D. Evans, Phys. A 299 (2001) 412-426]. Some numerical experiments illustrate the use of the obtained dynamic to simulate homogeneous liquid materials under shear flow.
