Emergent pseudo time-irreversibility in the classical many-body system of pair interacting particles
In this paper, the emergence of macroscopic-scale pseudo time-irreversibility is studied in the closed classical many-body system of pair interacting particles. First, exact continuum equations are derived to the Hamiltonian dynamics without the utilisation of statistical mechanics. Next, it is shown that the momentum density field incorporates the thermal degrees of freedom in the considered scaling limit, and therefore initial condition indicated pseudo time-irreversible solutions may exist to the dynamical equations. Numerical evidence for pseudoirreversible thermal equilibration, heat and momentum transport is provided. Finally, the possible reasons of the numerically obtained non-diffusional relaxation of macroscopic order is discussed.
