We present a theoretical model for the description of the heating mechanism and the redistribution of kinetic energy in a system of particles with nonreciprocal interactions that occur in disperse systems of different nature. To verify the theory, we carried out the numerical simulations of two-particle systems with a nonreciprocal “quasi-dipole–dipole” interaction that is similar to the interaction due to the effect of ion focusing in a laboratory complex plasma under experimental conditions. The proposed model of heating can explain various features of dust dynamics in anisotropic complex plasma.
