2 Organization Time Correlation Function: Definitions and Properties Linear Response Theory : –Fluctuation-Dissipation Theorem –Onsager’s Regression Hypothesis –Response Functions Chemical Kinetics Transport Properties –Self-diffusivity –Ionic Conductivity –Viscosity Absorption of Electromagnetic Radiation Space-time Correlation Functions

3 Time Correlation Functions Time-dependent trajectory of a classical system: Since the classical system is deterministic, a time-dependent quantity can be written as : Correlation function as a time average over a trajectory:

4 Time-correlation functions can be written as ensemble averages by summing over all possible initial conditions: Probability of observing a microstate Limiting behaviour Alternative definition of time-correlation function in terms of deviations of time-dependent properties from mean values.

5 Stationarity for systems with continuous interparticle forces, TCFs must be even functions of the time delay: Time-derivative with respect to time origins must be zero Short-time expansion of autocorrelation functions

6 Typical velocity autocorrelation function Zero slope at origin Rebound from Solvent cage D. Chandler

7 Small Deviations from Equilibrium: Classical Linear Response Theory Apply a weak perturbing field f to the system that couples to some physical property of the system – Electric field/ionic motion – Electromagnetic radiation/charges or molecular dipoles System prepared in non-equilibrium state by applying perturbing field f System allowed to relax freely Equilibrium established time=0 B(t) D. Chandler

8 Linear Response Theory (contd.) Let the time-dependent perturbation be such that At t=0, the probability of observing a configuration: How will the observed value of a quantity B(t) change with time when the perturbation is turned off at time t=0? Integrate over initial conditions of perturbed system at t=0 Time-dependent value of B for a given set of initial conditions

9 Linear Response Theory (contd.) Consider the effect of perturbations only upto first-order: D. Chandler, Introduction to Modern Statistical Mechanics

10 For t>0, the observed value of B will be given by Multiply the numerator and denominator by (1/Q) where Q is the partition function of the unperturbed system Denominator

11 Numerator: Time-dependent behaviour of B:

12 Onsager’s regression hypothesis The relaxation of macroscopic non-equilibrium disturbances is governed by the same dynamics as the regression of spontaneous microscopic fluctuations in the equilibrium system Macroscopic relaxation Equilibrium Time-correlation function

13 Response Functions For a weak perturbation, we can define a response function: The response of the system to an impulsive perturbation: To correspond to the linear response situation studied earlier:

14 Provides an alternative route to evaluate the time-dependent response as an integral over a time-correlation function

15 Transport Properties Flux=-transport coefficient X gradient Non-equilibrium MD: create a perturbation and watch the time-dependent response Equilibrium MD: measure the time-correlation function FluxGradientLinear Laws DiffusivityMassConcentrationFick’s Law of Diffusion Ionic Conductivity ChargeElectric potentialOhm’s Law ViscosityMomentumVelocityNewton’s Law of Viscosity Thermal Conductivity EnergyTemperatureFourier’s Law of Heat Conduction

16 Self-diffusivity Consider an external field that couples to the position of a tagged particle such that The steady state velocity of the tagged particle will then be:

17 Can one identify the mobility, as defined below, with the macroscopic velocity: Fick’s Law: Flux of diffusing species= Diffusivity X Concentration gradient Combining with the equation of continuity derived by imposing conservation of mass of tagged particles, gives : Diffusion Equation

18 If the original concentration profile is a delta-function, then the concentration profile at a later time (t) will be a d-dimensional Gaussian: Consider the second-moment of one-dimensional distribution: Einstein relation By writing the displacement as one can show that This definition of self-diffusivity will be the same as that of the mobility derived from linear reponse theory

19 Ionic Conductivity Consider an external electric field E x applied to an ionic melt. Under steady state conditions, the system will develop a net current: The ionic conductivity per unit volume,  will be defined by: Effect of the external field on the Hamiltonian: When the field is switched off at t=0, the current will decay towards the zero value characteristic of the unperturbed system. Charge on particle i velocity particle i Rate of change of net dipole moment

20 To apply the relation: to compute the time-dependent decay of the current, we set: to obtain: Conductivity per unit volume will then be given by:

22 Linear Response Theory and Spectroscopy Let f(t) be a periodic, monochromatic disturbance: Time-dependent energy: Rate of absorption of energy:

23 Linear Response Theory and Spectroscopy (contd.) Time-dependent value of A reflects response to applied field: The average rate of absorption or energy dissipation is given by: For a periodic field:

24 Linear Response Theory and Spectroscopy (contd.) Fourier transform of response function is defined as: Compute average rate of absorption of energy over one time period T= 

25 Linear Response Theory and Spectroscopy (contd.) Using linear response theory Absorption spectrum

26 Simple Harmonic Oscillator Let the quantity A coupled to the periodic perturbation obey SHO dynamics: Time-dependence of A: Absorption spectrum
