For classicalN-particle systems with pair interactionN −1 \(\mathop \Sigma \limits_{1 \leqq i \leqq j \leqq N} \) ø(q iq i) the Vlasov dynamics is shown to be thew*-limit asN→∞. Propagation of molecular chaos holds in this limit, and the fluctuations of intensive observables converge to a Gaussian stochastic process.
