Thermalization and Lyapunov exponents in Yang-Mills-Higgs theory


Journal Article

We investigate thermalization processes occurring at different time scales in the Yang-Mills-Higgs system at high temperatures. We determine the largest Lyapunov exponent associated with the gauge fields and verify its relation to the perturbatively calculated damping rate of a static gauge boson. © 1997 The American Physical Society.
