The projection of a mechanical system onto the
irreversible generalized Langevin equation

Rigoberto Hernandez

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA 30332-0400

Abstract:

The so-called irreversible generalized Langevin equation [R. Hernandez and F. L. Somer, J. Phys. Chem. B 103, 1064 (1999)], which extends the generalized Langevin equation (stochastic dynamics) to include irreversible changes—nonstationarity—in the solvent response, is shown to be the projection of an explicit time-dependent Hamiltonian system.
