Abstract (EN)We consider lattice dynamics with a small stochastic perturbation of order ε and prove that for a space-time scale of order ε−1 the local spectral density (Wigner function) evolves according to a linear transport equation describing inelastic collisions. For an energy and momentum conserving chain the transport equation predicts a slow decay, as 1/√t, for the energy current correlation in equilibrium. This is in agreement with previous studies using a different method.
