Time evolution of large classical systems

Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 38)


We begin with some very general and elementary remarks about nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. We then establish our notation for discussing finite systems of classical point particles, construct the microcanonical ensemble, and sketch some of the relations between statistical mechanics and ergodic theory.
