The blackbody reservoir and the Planck spectrum
We present a simple criterion for assessing the validity of various reservoir models viz. the results for the random force correlation should lead to the Planck spectrum. We note that the usual results associated with the RWA do not meet this criterion whereas the corresponding results for the independent-oscillator model do.
