Postcollapse dynamics of self-gravitating Brownian particles and bacterial populations

Clément Sire and Pierre-Henri Chavanis

par Clément Sire - 11 avril 2006

We address the post-collapse dynamics of a self-gravitating gas of Brownian particles in D dimensions, in both canonical and microcanonical ensembles. In the canonical ensemble, the post-collapse evolution is marked by the formation of a Dirac peak with increasing mass. The density profile outside the peak evolves self-similarly with decreasing central density and increasing core radius. In the microcanonical ensemble, the post-collapse regime is marked by the formation of a ``binary’’-like structure surrounded by an almost uniform halo with high temperature. These results are consistent with thermodynamical predictions.
