General Equations of Motion of Statistical Physics
The equations of motion of statistical mechanics are first-order differential equations for the evolution of statistical ensembles in time. In quantum statistics [2.1] the von Neumann equation [2.2] describes the evolution of the statistical operator; in classical statistics the Liouville equation [2.3] describes the evolution of the statistical distribution function.
