Title: Langevin synchronization in a time-dependent, harmonic basin: An exact solution in 1D

Abstract

The trajectories of two particles undergoing Langevin dynamics while sharing a common noise sequence can merge into a single (master) trajectory. In this paper, we present an exact solution for a particle undergoing Langevin dynamics in a harmonic, time-dependent potential, thus extending the idea of synchronization to nonequilibrium systems. We calculate the synchronization level, i.e., the mismatch between two trajectories sharing a common noise sequence, in the underdamped, critically damped, and overdamped regimes. In conclusion, we provide asymptotic expansions in various limiting cases and compare to the time independent case.
