Adiabatic Invariants and Equipartition

    Project Details

    Description

    The collisional relaxation of
    a 1-D gas of molecules with
    one internal degree of
    freedom is studied, in
    particular with respect to
    the role of a many-particle
    adiabatic invariant that
    exists when the timescale for
    the internal degrees of
    freedom is much shorter than
    the collisional timescale.
