Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Brownian motion of a general classical anharmonic oscillator is studied in the lowviscosity limit for a general non-Markoffian interaction with a heat bath. Memory effects are shown to have a profound influence on the rate of energy accumulation and relaxation.
