    The generalized Langevin equation (GLE) is extended to the case of nonstationary bath. The derivation starts with the Hamiltonian equation of motion of the total system including the bath, without any assumption on the form of Hamiltonian or the distribution of the initial condition. Then the...

    The stochastic motion of a two-dimensional vesicle in linear shear flow is studied at finite temperature. In the limit of small deformations from a circle, Langevin-type equations of motion are derived, which are highly nonlinear due to the constraint of constant perimeter length. These...

    In this paper molecular hydrodynamics is used to calculate the dynamic friction on the intramolecular vibrational coordinate of a homonuclear diatomic molecule dissolved in a simple liquid. The predicted dynamic friction is then compared to recent computer experiments. Agreement with the...

    We study the dynamics of semiflexible Vicsek fractals (SVF) following the framework established by Dolgushev and Blumen [J. Chem. Phys. 131, 044905 (2009)], a scheme which allows to model semiflexible treelike polymers of arbitrary architecture. We show, extending the methods used in the...

    In this article, the isomerization reaction of n-butane is used to study the dynamic properties of n-butane in aqueous solution. It is assumed that the dihedral angle of n-butane obeys the generalized Langevin equation (GLE), in which an effective potential, a friction damping and a random...
