Title: On the motion of classical three-body system with consideration of quantum fluctuations

Abstract

We obtained the systemof stochastic differential equations which describes the classicalmotion of the three-body system under influence of quantum fluctuations. Using SDEs, for the joint probability distribution of the total momentum of bodies system were obtained the partial differential equation of the second order. It is shown, that the equation for the probability distribution is solved jointly by classical equations, which in turn are responsible for the topological peculiarities of tubes of quantum currents, transitions between asymptotic channels and, respectively for arising of quantum chaos.

  • We extend our previous work [A. Higuchi and G. D. R. Martin, Found. Phys. 35, 1149 (2005)], which compared the predictions of quantum electrodynamics concerning radiation reaction with those of the Abraham-Lorentz-Dirac theory for a charged particle in linear motion. Specifically, we calculate the predictions for the change in position of a charged-scalar particle, moving in three-dimensional space, due to the effect of radiation reaction in the one-photon-emission process in quantum electrodynamics. The scalar particle is assumed to be accelerated for a finite period of time by a three-dimensional electromagnetic potential dependent only on one of the spacetime coordinates. Wemore » perform this calculation in the ({Dirac_h}/2{pi}){yields}0 limit and show that the change in position agrees with that obtained in classical electrodynamics with the Lorentz-Dirac force treated as a perturbation. We also show for a time-dependent but space-independent electromagnetic potential that the forward-scattering amplitude at order e{sup 2} does not contribute to the position change in the ({Dirac_h}/2{pi}){yields}0 limit after the mass renormalization is taken into account.« less
  • We have studied the structure and dynamics of nonrotating rare-gas trimers bound by a potential that combines two-body Lennard-Jones interactions and three-body Axilrod-Teller (triple dipole) interactions. Both classical and quantum trimers are examined. We investigate the onset and development of chaotic dynamics in the classical clusters by computing the Liapunov exponents associated with various phase space trajectories. In our studies of the quantum clusters, we examine the structure of the vibrational eigenstates, the statistical properties of the distribution of energy levels, and the average cluster structure at finite temperatures. Both avenues of research are principally aimed at understanding the effectmore » of the three-body term on the clusters{close_quote} behavior. We find that the three-body term gives rise to an integrable or nearly integrable component of phase space that is associated with the clusters{close_quote} linear configuration and that manifests itself in both the classical and quantum properties of the trimers. The finite temperature structures predicted for quantum Ne{sub 3} clusters suggest that over the range of parameters considered here, these clusters are sufficiently delocalized that properties associated with the linear configuration should be readily observable, even at very low temperatures. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}« less
  • We consider an optical lattice potential loaded with a Bose-Einstein condensate in the presence of three-body loss. The dynamics of the atoms in the lattice realizes the Bose-Hubbard model of condensed-matter physics, where on-site number fluctuations are reduced by the atomic repulsion energy but increase with increased tunneling between lattice sites. A range of quantum states with different number fluctuations can therefore be created by varying the amplitude of the optical potential, and will be reflected in the values of the on-site correlation functions G{sub n}{sup i}=<b{sub i}{sup {dagger}}{sup n}b{sub i}{sup n}>, where b{sub i} is the annihilation operator ofmore » the ith lattice site. The three-body loss rate is shown to be proportional to a sum of the on-site three-body correlation functions and therefore acts as a natural probe of the number fluctuations. The three-body correlation function G{sub 3}{sup i} is a sensitive measure of the number fluctuations when site occupation is low. In particular, when the average number at each site is less than 3, the number fluctuations in the superfluid phase result in G{sub 3}{sup i}{approx_equal}n-bar{sub i}{sup 3} and give rise to a finite three-body loss, whereas in the insulator phase, G{sub 3}{sup i}=n{sub i}(n{sub i}-1)(n{sub i}-2) and three-body loss ceases to occur.« less
  • We perform measurements of the third moment of atom number fluctuations in small slices of a very elongated weakly interacting degenerate Bose gas. We find a positive skewness of the atom number distribution in the ideal gas regime and a reduced skewness compatible with zero in the quasicondensate regime. For our parameters, the third moment is a thermodynamic quantity whose measurement constitutes a sensitive test of the equation of state, and our results are in agreement with a modified Yang-Yang thermodynamic prediction. Moreover, we show that the measured skewness reveals the presence of true three-body correlations in the system.
