The equations which we'll learn in those notes have been first provided in 1963 through E. N. Lorenz. They outline a third-dimensional process of normal differential equations that will depend on 3 actual confident parameters. As we fluctuate the parameters, we modify the behaviour of the movement made up our minds via the equations.

Consider that the acceleration of a molecule α is repreα α α sented by a sum of two terms, namely, x ¨α i = Fi + Xi . The ﬁrst term Fi corresponds to an external force per unit of mass which acts on the molecule α being independent of the molecular velocities. 40) β=1 where Xiαβ = Xiαβ (|xβ − xα |) represents the force per unit of mass which acts on the molecule α due to its interaction with the molecule β. Here, the following conditions can be analyzed: (i) if α n, one obtain n n ⎛ n ⎞ ∂Fn ∂FN ⎝Fiα + dxn+1 .

1, the molecule which has velocity c is at the point O, while the other molecule is approaching the plane according to a right angle and with relative velocity g = c1 − c. The relative motion is also characterized by the impact parameter b and by the azimuthal angle ε.

Over a long period of time all accessible microstates are equally probable. Under this condition, the average value of a property of a system taken in a long period of time will be equal to its average value taken over all microstates. , v2 = kT . 60) can be written as d xv 1 kT + xv = . 63) and the relationship dx/dt = d x /dt. 65) where C is an integration constant. For the initial condition x(0) = 0, the variable x(t) represents the displacement of the particle in suspension, and the constant becomes C = −τ kT /m.
