Abstract

It is shown that the ensemble Monte Carlo technique, in which an ensemble of electrons is utilized and all averages of dynamic variables are computed as ensemble averages, is a numerical solution to generalized equations of motion involving memory effects. Balance equations are also obtained having the same feature. Moreover, these show the importance of initial-state correlations in delaying the initial accelerative effect of the fields.
