Cooperative jump motions of jammed particles in a one-dimensional periodic potential

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    Cooperative jump motions are studied for mutually interacting particles in a one-dimensional periodic potential. The diffusion constant for the cooperative motion in systems including a small number of particles is numerically calculated and it is compared with theoretical estimates. We find that the size distribution of the cooperative jump motions obeys an exponential law in a large system.
