The Mpemba effect is a phenomenon in which an initially hotter sample cools sooner. In this paper, we show the emergence of a non-monotonic Mpemba-like effect in a molecular binary mixture immersed in a viscous gas. Namely, a crossover in the temperature evolution when at least one of the samples presents non-monotonic relaxation. The influence of the bath on the dynamics of the particles is modeled via a viscous drag force plus a stochastic Langevin-like term. Each component of the mixture interchanges energy with the bath depending on the mechanical properties of its particles. This discrimination causes the coupling between the time evolution of temperature with that of the partial temperatures of each component. The non-monotonic Mpemba effect—and its inverse and mixed counterparts—stems from this coupling. In order to obtain analytical results, the velocity distribution functions of each component are approximated by considering multitemperature Maxwellian distributions. The theoretical results derived from the Enskog kinetic theory show an excellent agreement with direct simulation Monte Carlo (DMSC) data.
