A chain of interacting particles under strain
We investigate the behaviour of a chain of interacting Brownian particles with one end fixed and the other end moving away at slow speed [epsilon]>0, in the limit of small noise. The interaction between particles is through a pairwise potential U with finite range b>0. We consider both overdamped and underdamped dynamics.
