On the mass enhancement of black body background fluctuations

Nguyen Van Hoa, Le Van Xuan, Nguyen Tri Lan and Nguyen Ai Viet

Motivated by the mass enhancement in the toy model of moving particle in Boltzmann and Gaussian background fluctuations, the contribution of black body background fluctuation to the effective mass of massless and massive particles is considered in this work. As the black body radiation depends only on its temperature, the dependence of the effective mass on the temperature is obtained. The results, therefore, provide several physical insights for the research of complex systems where the interaction and equilibrium of a system and its surroundings are still not clear. By interpreting a characteristic parameter of the environmental contribution as its “effective temperature”, “the thermal equilibrium” condition for complex systems would be discussed in the context of a thermodynamic theory.
