We consider a quantum particle in thermal equilibrium with any quantum system in a finite volume under some conditions. For the Heisenberg operator of the momentum operator of the quantum particle, we show that, on a partial *-algebra, the Heisenberg operator satisfies a quantum Langevin equation, which is similar to the work of Ford et al. [G. W. Ford, J. T. Lewis, and R. F. O'Connell, Phys. Rev. A 37, 4419 (1988)]. Through the Langevin equation, we show general and mathematical properties between the canonical correlation and the independent-oscillator model.
