Abstract:

It is shown that a heavy particle in a one dimensional assembly of harmonic oscillators performs Brownian motion provided that the spectral density of eigenvalues of the interaction matrix is proportional to 1omega for omega approaching 0. The interaction matrix may otherwise be completely arbitrary. A generalization of this result to D dimensional systems is given. Author
