I Relativistic dynamics in the Hamiltonian formulation

  1. Jan 7, 2019 #1
    hi all!

    I’m trying to generalise the Caldeira-Leggett Hamiltonian (heat bath + particle) to the case of high velocities. Naturally, the multi-oscillator Hamiltonian needs to change and I have a gnawing suspicion that the multi-particle Hamiltonian is just the sum of single-particle hamiltonians with $$ H = \sqrt{P^2 + m^2} $$

    In natural units ofc.
