The equivalence between a noise source in combination with a resistance, and a thermal bath, is a part of fluctuation theory. This observation was the motivation for the author's 1960 calculation of the power flow between modes of vibration excited by random noise sources. The resulting relation between power flow and uncoupled energy of vibration is therefore more than a thermal analogy; it is an actual representation of two thermal baths in contact. In a sense, the answer was known before thedoi:10.1121/1.1567274 pmid:12765357 fatcat:qiecolwyarhhphy7ivees2bmju
