In this last chapter we review a few selected applications of the methods discussed previously. First a realization of an oscillator bath with thermalizing effect is treated for a pure non-Abelian gluon plasma. This is followed by a numerical study of the distribution of local energy packets. Finally, an in-depth study of an exactly solvable model Lagrangian will demonstrate how the spectral function view resolves Gibbs’ paradox in a natural way, and how this can be used for a simulation of the equation of state obtained in large scale lattice QCD studies.
