Sine-Gordon solitons: Particles obeying relativistic dynamics

View publication

Abstract

We define a dynamical variable associated with the position of a particle representing the sine-Gordon soliton. Simple relativistic dynamic equations for this particle under the influence of forces are derived, including the case of dissipation. The fluctuation-dissipation theorem for this particle is obtained as well as some results on steady-state velocities and slowing of the thermalization time for ultrarelativistic solitions. © 1983 The American Physical Society.
