Dynamical approach to temperature
UNSPECIFIED (1997) Dynamical approach to temperature. PHYSICAL REVIEW LETTERS, 78 (5). pp. 772-774. ISSN 0031-9007Full text not available from this repository.
We present a new dynamical approach for measuring the temperature of a Hamiltoninn dynamical systems in the microcanonical ensemble of thermodynamics. We show that under the hypothesis of ergodicity the temperature can be computed as a time average of the functional, del . (del/del(2)), on the energy surface. Our method not only yields an efficient computational approach for determining the temperature, it also provides an intrinsic link between dynamical systems theory and the statistical mechanics of Hamiltonian systems.
