Effective long-distance interaction from short-distance interaction in a periodically driven one-dimensional classical system
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2016
We study the classical dynamics of many interacting particles in a periodically driven one-dimensional (1D) system. We show that under the rotating wave approximation (RWA), a short-distance 1D interaction (delta function or hard-core interaction) becomes a long-distance two-dimensional (2D) interaction which only depends on the distance in the phase space of the rotating frame. The RWA interaction describes the effect of the interaction on the slowly changing amplitude and phase of the oscillating particles, while the fast oscillations take on the role of a force carrier, which allows for interaction over much larger effective distances.
