In the special case where [tau]' is constant, the ensemble response function is of the form exp (-t/[tau]') and we have classical Debye relaxation.
We see that in the DRT, Debye relaxations are weighted by a probability-density function.
It is well known that the [Chi][double prime] response function in a Debye relaxation process is represented by a asymmetric loss peak around [[Omega].
