We consider Kac’s 1D N-particle system coupled to an ideal thermostat at a fixed temperature, introduced by Bonetto, Loss, and Vaidyanathan in 2014. We obtain a propagation of chaos result for this system, with an explicit and uniform-in-time rate of order N- 1 / 3 in terms of the 2-Wasserstein metric squared. We also show well-posedness and equilibration for the limit kinetic equation in the space of probability measures. The proofs use a coupling argument previously introduced by Cortez and Fontbona in 2016.
