We present an analytic solution for the d-dimensional (d > 1) hard-sphere free flight trajectories in a thermostatted colour field. The solution shows that particles can only reach a finite distance in the direction perpendicular to the field in the absence of collisions. Using a numerical algorithm we designed to simulate many-body hard-sphere systems with curved trajectories, we study the onset of the instability leading to phase separation in the two-dimensional case for a range of field...[Show more]
