On the dynamics of a polaron in a classical chain with finite temperature
Abstract
In today’s literature, polaron states in classical molecular chains are mostly calculated at zero temperature. It is assumed that the properties of these states change little if the temperature is different from zero but is much less than the characteristic energy equal to the depth of the polaron level. By numerical experiments, we demonstrate that the temperature decay of a polaron depends on the chain length. The longer the chain, the lower the critical temperature above which the charge is in a delocalized state, and, conversely, the shorter the chain, the higher the decay temperature of a polaron. The results of numerical experiments lead to a conclusion that, in an indefinitely long chain, polaron states decay at temperatures differing arbitrarily little from zero.

Twotemperature, twomass quasiequilibrium plasmas may occur in electronion plasmas, nuclearmatter, as well as in electronhole condensedmatter systems. Dense twotemperature hydrogen plasmas straddle the difficult partially degenerate regime of electron densities and temperatures which are important in astrophysics, in inertialconfinement fusion research, and other areas of warm densematter physics. Results from quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) are used to benchmark the procedures used in classical moleculardynamics simulations and hypernetted chain (HNC) and classicalmap HNC (CHNC) methods to derive electronelectron and electronproton pairdistribution functions. Where QMC is not available, we used KohnSham results as the reference calculation. Then, nonequilibrium molecular dynamics for twotemperature,more »

Perturbation theory in the polaron model at finite temperature
This paper constructs a perturbation theory scheme for the partition function (and free energy) in the polaron model. The correction of arbitrary order is expressed in terms of multiple integrals which depend parametrically on the temperature. The first two orders are analyzed in detail. In the higher orders, the fourpoint correlation function, for which an explicit expression is obtained, plays a central role. The properties of this correlation function are studied. The analogies with the perturbation theory scheme for the S matrix in quantum field theory are discussed. 
Particleincell and hypernetted chain models of twocomponent, twotemperature coupled classical plasmas
Threedimensional simulations of moderately to strongly coupled electronion and multicomponent classical plasmas using the particleincell method are presented. The simulations resolve subDebyelength interparticle spacing to accurately model the dynamics of these systems. We consider realistic mass ratios and quasiequilibrium conditions with different component temperatures which are relevant on short time scales. The simulation results are in very good agreement with classical hypernetted chain calculations for dense electronion and ionion plasmas. Our results demonstrate the feasibility and utility of largescale particleincell simulations for the modeling and analysis of multicomponent moderately and strongly coupled plasmas. 
Propagation of a finiteamplitude elastic pulse in a bar of Berea sandstone: A detailed look at the mechanisms of classical nonlinearity, hysteresis, and nonequilibrium dynamics: Nonlinear propagation of elastic pulse
Here, we study the propagation of a finiteamplitude elastic pulse in a long thin bar of Berea sandstone. In previous work, this type of experiment has been conducted to quantify classical nonlinearity, based on the amplitude growth of the second harmonic as a function of propagation distance. To greatly expand on that early work, a noncontact scanning 3D laser Doppler vibrometer was used to track the evolution of the axial component of the particle velocity over the entire surface of the bar as functions of the propagation distance and source amplitude. With these new measurements, the combined effects of classicalmore »
